THOSE HISTORICAL EVENTS AND CONDITIONS WHICH HAVE HAD A DIRECT EFFECT ON THE LANGUAGE OF ENGLISH-SPEAKING PEOPLES ARE EXAMINED, ALONG WITH THE MAJOR INTERNAL CHANGES IN ENGLISH WHICH TOOK PLACE SLOWLY OVER A PERIOD OF CENTURIES. DEVELOPMENTS IN OLD AND MIDDLE ENGLISH SPELLING, PHONOLOGY, GRAMMAR, AND VOCABULARY ARE EXPLAINED.
