The Power Of Babel by John H McWhorter
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


There can be few subjects of such widespread interest and fascination to anyone who reads as the strange ways of languages. In this wonderfully entertaining and fascinating book, John McWhorter introduces us to the natural history of language- from Russonorsk, a creole of Russian and Norwegian once spoken by trading fur trappers to an Australian Aboriganal language which only has three verbs. Witty, brilliant and authorative, this book is a must for anyone who is interested in language, as sheerly enjoyable as non-fiction gets.
