Book description

An in-depth pre­sen­ta­tion of the his­tory of the Span­ish lan­guage, writ­ten as a clear and engag­ing nar­ra­tive. Illus­tra­tions bring to life the his­tor­i­cal events that shaped the evo­lu­tion of the Spanish-language, the third most-spoken lan­guage in the world today. The influ­ences that var­i­ous other cul­tures have had upon the Span­ish lan­guage are explored, as well as the con­tri­bu­tions that Span­ish has made to the Eng­lish lan­guage. Both stu­dents and teach­ers will be fas­ci­nated by the infor­ma­tion in this book, designed to dis­pel myths and mis­con­cep­tions and to help us develop a bet­ter under­stand­ing of why we speak as we do.
