Описание: Why does language change? Why can we speak to and understand our grandparents but may have trouble reading Shakespeare? Why is Chaucer's English of the fourteenth century so different from Modern English of the late twentieth century that the two are essentially different languages? Why are the Americans and the English "one people divided by a common language"? And how can the language of Chaucer and Modern English - or Modern British and American English - still be called the "same language"?
