As a university professor, Michael Drout realizes the importance of scripting, timing in narrating an audiobook. Professor Drout makes this lecture series stand out as informative and engaging. With a lively tone, conversational without sounding unrehearsed, Drout takes listeners on a fascinating and insightful tour of the English language: the theories and principles of linguistics; the origins of English as an ancient Germanic offshoot; the influence of Latin, Celtic, Scandinavian, and French to the time of Chaucer; a discussion of modern English from Shakespeare through American dialects; and the role of English as a global tongue.
