Hello everyone! Today I’m not going to make a post about TV shows as last time, but about a video that I found very interesting that traces the origins of English language. As a linguistics freak, I love this kind of videos and articles so I couldn’t help sharing it with you. I hope you find it as interesting as I did!

The video has been published by TED, a global set of conferences run by the private non-profit Sapling Foundation. They have thousands of videos about plenty of different subjects and usually you can add subtitles to them, so I think they’re a good option if you don’t like watching TV shows or you don’t have the time to do it; you’ll find almost all their videos on Youtube. In this precise video, the narrator speaks really clearly so I don’t think you’ll have any problem understanding it appart from the specific vocabulary.
