Chronology of Words & Phrases: A Thousand Years in the History of English
Linda Flavell (au); Roger Flavell (au). This book differs from a typical dictionary. Instead of beginning with the word & perhaps going on to the historical world for clarification, the direction here is from events in the world to their impact on language. It looks at historical events & investigates what the results were on the English language. Over 10 centuries, the authors chose roughly 10 dates per 100 years, & explored the linguistic ramifications of what happened as a result. So it is chronology that organizes the material, & not an alphabetical list of words. The book includes an index of main words within each entry.
