Words of the World A Global History of the Oxford English Dictionary

Review From User :

This book had me gripped from the very first chapter which described the author's experience of being an editor on the OED. So captivating! I enjoyed learning more about the history. Being originally from Canada, I wanted to know more about the treatment of language from outside of Britain and this book gave me insights into attitudes towards language and Canadian English and other varieties of English around the world in the nineteenth century. I highly recommend it!
