Expert feature: the History of English Part 2

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:30 pm on 3 April 2017

Last week we focussed on Early and Middle English with Mark Amsler, an Associate Professor Comparative Literature at the School of Cultures, Languages and Linguistics at the University of Auckland.

He joins us again this week to continue our history lesson, looking at Early Modern English, and how it came to be the language many of us speak today.
