Globish
By

Rating
Go anywhere in the world today and you'll see or hear English in some form. It may not necessarily be the Queen's English that you're hearing, but it is, nevertheless, a form of universally recognised English - it is Globish. In his wonderfully witty and informative new book, Robert McCrum explores the curious history, vivacity and endurance of English and ponders why, while British and American empires have waxed and waned, the English language, freer from its moorings like never before, has quietly taken over the world.

Reviews

A daring revisionist history of the English language. . . . History buffs and linguistics junkies alike will devour this love letter to the English language. Gripping and profoundly informative. Robert McCrum argues, brilliantly and provocatively, that England s greatest contribution to the world is English. The empire may be gone. But Globish explains why the language still rules.--Malcolm Gladwell Globish presents a terrifically interesting prism through which to view the history of English . . . Most fascinating and amusing . . . Mr. McCrum s rapid journey . . . makes entertaining reading.--Paul Levy
