Click to enlarge

Discovering Words is a short history of our English language. 

Where did our words come from?  The English language is about 1,500 years old.  Since then, English has added words from many different languages.  Some are very old, others are very new.  People who speak and write English have invented new words, too.  With this book you will find out where some of our words came from, see how our language is always changing, and learn about history in a new way.

Originally published by Literacy Volunteers of NY City, this popular and useful little book is still available from Peppercorn.
