Where did English come from? How has it changed and evolved over time to become the powerhouse language it is today? This week, we talk about the history of English: what it looked like when it was more Germanic, how it became more French in Middle English, and the changes that happened to make it the Modern English we speak today.

This is our first historical linguistics video, so we’re excited to hear what you have to say! ^_^

History of English episode! I took an Old English class at university, and it is literally the best class I’ve ever taken. I’m a big historical linguistics fan, so I’m pumped about this one! English has such a wild history.
