A Dictionary of the Low-Dutch Element in the English Vocabulary

£39.99

Product description

A dictionary of all the words which, over the years, the English have taken from Low-Dutch. It is interesting to see just how many words the English language has taken, and it shows how much our language has evolved thanks to other cultures and how it keeps evolving. The book itself is in good condition, the cover shows a slight discolouration but not other noticeable signs of wear. The 663 pages show minimal signs of foxing, browning or wear in general.
