Description - The Return of the Word Spy by Ursula Dubosarsky
From the beginning of time, the Word Spy has been creeping down hallways, hiding in shadows and journeying through different lands to discover everything there is to know about the English language. In her first book, The Word Spy, she shared with us the secrets she'd learnt about English, from the first alphabet in 4000 BC right up to the tricks of modern texting. In The Return of the Word Spy she continues the fascinating journey through language, with chapters on language families, how we learn to speak, grammar and written forms of communication. In an accessible, engaging style, the Word Spy explains the meaning of nouns, verbs, pronouns, 'dead' languages, word origins and other wordy wonders.
