Excellent Jun 6, 2006
This book is a technical treatment of the field of of historical linguistics, the study of language change over time. It is probably the best technical book on the subject, better than Trask's book which is somewhat less technical and has more "fluff".
This book is a useful resource for anyone wishing to study how languages change and modify over time.
