History of English

Kevin Stroud from the History of English Podcast joins me for a fascinating discussion and dive into… well, the history of English!

In this episode, we talk about a variety of things, including:
  • Why TH doesn’t have its own letter
  • In what part of England the language was standardised?
  • When did the first dictionaries come
  • Why there are so many French words in English
  • Why we have so many silent letters
  • Why we have different words for animals and meat (pig, pork)
  • Where English surnames come from
  • And more!

Don’t miss this one! If you have any trouble understanding some of the difficult terms in this episode, the YouTube video version will have some definitions on screen. The Member’s Transcript will help even more.
