World of Words: An Illustrated History of Western Languages (rev. ed.)
Victor Stevenson (au); Philip Howard (fr)
This is the fascinating story of words on the move. In narrative, maps & photographs, Stevenson brings alive the dynamic process by which language travels & reinvents itself through time, with success & failure along the way. He reveals the relationships between dozens of different languages. The book includes over 140 maps & photographs, with special maps that show who speaks what where. Chapters: vanished voices; the Indo-Aryans; the mystery of Basque; Greek; Celtic; the legacy of Latium; voices of the north; the Slavonic languages; the Baltic tongues; the outsiders; & Europe’s national languages.
