This etymological tour de force was written by an autodidact who became a world-famous linguist and editor of the Oxford English Dictionary. Deeply educational yet not overwhelming, this compact culmination of a philological life uses nontechnical terms to explain links between English and other tongues - Greek, Latin, German, Spanish, and French.
