H/t to Mr. Verb for leading me to the History of English in 10 Minutes. Here’s Chapter 1 (and I also particularly recommend Chapter 3: Shakespeare and Chapter 7: The Age of the Dictionary).
Bonus MRP moment: This lady calls herself Grammar Spice. That in and of itself amuses me.
Just came upon this and it’s great. Love that the English language “began with the phrase up yours.” Hilarious.
