This is an overview of the current state and a glimpse of future directions of the English language in Europe. It sets the scene for this by looking at the development of English from a Germanic tongue in northwest Europe to an international language that has spread across the world. In the European context, there is an examination of the role of English, especially in Germany, in major fields of work and study, such as science, education and arts. There is also a consideration of its predominance within and outside the European Union language services.

The history and development of English, from the earliest known writings to its status today as a dominant world language, is a subject of major importance to linguists and historians. In this book, a team of international experts cover the entire recorded history of the English language, outlining its development over fifteen centuries. With an emphasis on more recent periods, every key stage in the history of the language is covered, with full accounts of standardisation, names, the distribution of English in Britain and North America, and its global spread. New historical surveys of the crucial aspects of the language are presented, and historical changes that have affected English are treated as a continuing process, helping to explain the shape of the language today. This complete and up-to-date history of English will be indispensable to all advanced students, scholars and teachers in this prominent field.
