The English language is not a monolithic entity but an amalgam of many different varieties that can be associated respectively with groups of speakers, with individuals, and with the occasion. Among such varieties are slang, regional and class dialects, the language of children, and the language used by public speakers, journalists, lawyers, scientists, and advertisers. Contributing to these varieties are dialects, idiolects, registers, slang, usage, and the changing nature of our language. A number of changes in pronunciation, vocabulary, and syntax are currently taking place and are thus constantly creating new varieties of English. (Hod)

5 editions published in 1963 in English and English, Middle and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This version of Brut is a rendering into modern English, in verse format, of the Middle English story of Britain, from its founding by the legendary Brutus, a supposed descendant of the Trojans, to the final loss of land and prestige when the Saxons took over Britain. Lawman, a priest in the Welsh Marches in the diocese of Worcester, was translating from the twelfth-century French octosyllabic couplets of Wace, who came from Jersey and was himself translating Geoffrey of Monmouth's Latin prose. Lawman's narrative poem, probably written in the first quarter of the thirteenth-century, is a compound of chronicle, romance, saint's life and sermon." -- Book jacket flap
