Steeped in history, geography, sociology, and political drama, The Story of English has little to do with dictionaries, official documents, or highbrow literature. It is a tale of language used for immediate needs--in street talk, popular entertainment, war, and trade--and it covers more than a millennium of civilization's ebb and flow. Vividly capturing a sense of global dynamics, the series travels to 16 countries and across 5 continents as it follows the evolutionary path of the first worldwide language.
