    There is so much great information in here that it requires repeat readings over several years, especially Part II I m on my first pass Consider this book a meta manual for learning how to learn languages.It is divided into four parts Part I is a natural history of language Part II covers the hybrid heritage of English as a language which straddles the Germanic and Romance branches of the Indo European language tree Part III covers language problems and planning movem

    This book is a product of its time The author was multilingual but not a linguist The book was written right after WWII The author s purpose was to aid people to be able to communicate with each other so that understanding between people would contribute to the prevention of future wars.The book contains essays about the Latin and Greek origins of European words He discusses Romance and Germanic languages He describes trends in the syntax and semantics of the language famili

    If you re interested in a broad overview of languages, not just in studying one of them, then you re going to come across this treasure trove of a book at some stage in your travels.Despite being a bit dated at this stage, it has a modern feel to it due to its practical, no nonsense approach Bodmer constantly encourages you to learn short cuts or heuristics to capitalise on the family resemblances among the different language groups, which many language books fail to do In fact the

    To be brief, this is an excellent over view of language, specifically the Germanic and Romance groups of the Indo European family The book is a bit dated and exceptionally Eurocentric in terms of language used and general subject matter, but it is still admirably progressive is certain aspects It straddles the line between instruction and archive I recommend it heartily, but with the caveat that one might getout of it with some time spent withrecent linguistics before diving in O To be brief, this is an excellent over view of lan
