The English language has one of the most richest vocabularies in the world. In it, we can see various traces of the language’s history. In this lecture, we will look at the history of the English language through its words and see how various historical events, including the arrival of the Vikings in the early Middle Ages and the Hundred Years’ War in the late Middle Ages impacted on the development of English.
