History of the English Language

Thu 11 Jan, 2024 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 10:30 am on day Second of the month, repeating indefinitely

We will be looking at how the English language has developed over the centuries starting with the Celtic and Roman influences, and progressing through Anglo Saxon and Middle English to the Early Modern Age.

It is a fascinating story of change: no previous knowledge is needed, and as we will be a maximum of 6 there will be plenty of discussion – this is not intended as a lecture series!

Members will be encouraged to contribute their own information and examples.  You will need to purchase a copy of Charlie Haylock’s book ‘In a Manner of Speaking – The Story of the English Language’ as we will use this as a starting point each month – it is chronologically written.

This group has now started a waiting list. However, if you are interested in this group please email the group co-ordinator to be added to the waiting list; and also email secretary@u3aburystedmunds.co.uk whereby other interested members are being noted with the aim to start a second group.

We will request a contribution to refreshments but no charge for the venue as a member has kindly offered her home to meet in.
