My Review of The Mother Tongue

The Mother Tongue: English and How it Got that Way

The Mother Tongue: English and How it Got that Way by Bill Bryson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This was my “read on the plane” book for our trip to Europe, and I rather enjoyed it. I am not at all certain that everything he said is accurate, but I generally enjoy Bryson’s writing, and I was not looking for a scholarly dissertation on linguistics anyway. So as long as you know that it is a discursive and have the right expectations you might enjoy this as well.
