Journeys in English book. This highly entertaining BBC Radio 4 series is written and pres. Bryson explains how English has been shaped through invasion and conquest, as well as the rules that brought order to a disorderly language, the million and one ways to have fun with the English language, and the struggle with phrasal verbs including the way things often get lost in the translation. William McGuire Bryson OBE HonFRS ˈbraɪsən born 8 December 1951 is an American-British author of books on travel, the English language, science, and other non-fiction topics. Born in the United States, he has been a resident of Britain for most of his adult life, returning to the United States between 1995 and 2003, and holds dual American and British citizenships.

This is a CD to accompany the book and read by Bill Bryson himself. In the programmes originally broadcast on Radio 4 he covers a wide range of topics related to the development of English and deals with topics as far apart as the runes on the Ruthwell Cross in Scotland to examples of modern American English. Listened to as a whole as I did driving to Scotland the programme format can be a little irritating as he introduces himself yet again to his weekly audience but his is a small gripe. Bill Bryson chronicles one season in American history, when Lindbergh flew, Babe Ruth hit and Calvin Coolidge vacationed. The author of more than a dozen previous books, including A Short History of Nearly Everything, Bryson writes in a style as effervescent as the time itself. Lindberghs plane, the Spirit of St. Louis, was little more than a flying gas tank, and piloting it for his landmark flight would have been rather like crossing the ocean in a tent.

Excerpt About the Apostrophe From Journeys In English By Bill Bryson by Andrea James is licensed under a Creative Commons License. Seems a little quiet over here. Bill Bryson and his family live in a Victorian parsonage in a part of England where nothing of any great significance has happened since the Romans decamped. Yet one day, he began to consider how very little he knew about the ordinary things of life as he found it in that comfortable home. William Shakespeare, the most celebrated poet in the English language, left behind nearly a million words of text, but his biography has long been a thicket of wild supposition arranged around scant facts. With a steady hand and his trademark wit, Bill Bryson sorts through this colorful muddle to reveal the man himself
