Part of a series, this book aims to show the ways in which the languages of the Greek and Latin world still matter to us. Latin and Greek have had an enormous effect on nearly all the languages of Europe and have played a part in shaping Western thought and culture.
Latin and Greek are often called 'dead' languages. Our Greek and Latin Roots gives the lie to the myth by taking its readers on a journey of exploration through their own language. It charts the historical spread of the classical languages throughout the English-speaking world and encourages students to take an active role in uncovering just how central a part they play in giving English the shape it has today. Full of fascinating information and stimulating exercises, Our Greek and Latin Roots is entirely accessible to teachers and students with little or no knowldge of classical languages.
