Excerpt from The History of the English Language From the Teutonic Invasion of Britain to the Close of the Georgian Era

This work is a History of the English Language, not a history of English Literature. Its design is to trace the growth and formation of our tongue, the in?uences that have affected its development, or have impressed upon it certain characteristics. All purely'literary criticism is therefore irrelevant, except so far as it may'tend to illus trate the peculiarities of the language, or to explain its apparent anomalies and its complexities. The book con tains the substance of the 'lectures delivered to the ad vanced classes in English in the Baltimore City College during the past three years, and is intended for the purposes of instruction in Colleges, High Schools, and Academies, as well as to meet the wants of general read ers. The necessity for some work similar in design to the present must be obvious to all teachers of the English language in the United States. The want of suitable text-books constitutes one of the most serious obstacles with which the magnificent and rapidly expanding science of English Philology has to contend upon this side of the Atlantic.
