The Elements of Our Language and How to Teach Them The English language is filled with spelling and pronunciation challenges...words like buffet, cousin, canyon, dwindle, and mosquito. Where do they come from? How did they become a part of our language? Concisely written and easy-to-understand, this book traces the English language from its origins to the complex and extensive vocabulary we use today. You'll be well-prepared to help your students appreciate the influence of other languages. They'll see how important historical events spawned new words and will value the contributions of William Shakespeare and the Bible. Seven appendices containing thought-provoking exercises and helpful ideas give you practical methods for expanding your classroom discussions.
