THE GIFT OF TONGUES

A book on language, which anyone who likes words, their origins, their meaning, their uses should find informative and stimulating. The author has drawn on all tongues and races, shown relationships and influences. She treats of language as communication; sounds and alphabets; building a vocabulary from derivatives; compounds and how compounded; grammar; words in poetry; dialect. Much that is useful and contagious in enthusiasm and interest.
