  • King Alfreds English

    $20.00

    Men and women during the times of the Reformation gave their lives so that we could read the Bible in our native tongue! But how did this “native tongue” of ours, that we call English, come to be? This book is a fun and enlightening view of English history, through the lens of the major language “invasions” which affected it, and how they changed the shape and form of English.

    More than a history of the English language, this is a highly entertaining and educational celebration of the delights of English. Woven into this history are the stories of several key English authors, whose prose and poetry have influenced the development of English. Learn how words morph and mutate, how grammar shifts and simplifies, and with some zany word histories thrown in, get a fresh look at English altogether!

    Also you’ll learn why the English Bible had an unparalleled impact on the development of our language.

    “In my 26 years of homeschooling, I have rarely found a book like yours; full of godly, interesting information and presented in such an engaging way. Going through your book with my children is something we still talk about together. I just wanted you to know that I am recommending this book to all of my readers as a must for advanced (high school) language arts.” -Sherry Hayes

    Author Laurie J. White’s book King Alfred’s English is enlightening, entertaining, and easy to read about the origin and history of the English language, from the Latin influence of the Romans in Britain, through Anglo-Saxon Old English, Middle English after the Norman Invasion, Early Modern English of Queen Elizabeth I and King James, to Contemporary English. King Alfred’s English is both accurate and pleasurable reading. -Dr. Wes Davis, Professor of English, Dalton State College

    Chosen by the Andreolas as one of their TOP TEN PICKS FOR 2010, Dean Andreola writes, “How did Latin become a “prison” to the spread of the gospel? What was the Brothers Grimm’s amazing discovery? Whatever happened to “thee” and “thou,” and how did we get from old to modern English? Can you spot an Anglo Saxon word from a Latin one? The answers may surprise you!” -CBD Homeschool Catalog, Summer/Fall 2010
