This comprehensive and accessible student workbook accompanies the fifth edition of Albert C. Baugh and Thomas Cable's History of the English Language.
Each chapter in the workbook corresponds directly to a chapter in the textbook and offers exercises, review questions, extensive supplementary examples, additional explanations and a range of sample extracts taken from texts of different periods. An additional 'pre-chapter' on the sounds of English also provides phonetic information and exercises that will prove useful throughout the book.
This third edition has been revised alongside the textbook and includes new exercises to accompany the sections on Gender Issues and Linguistic Change, and African American Vernacular English.
This workbook is an invaluable companion for all History of English Language courses.
