Tutor: Brian Jaques

An illustration of the English language through the development of its words. Tracing the antecedents and relatives of words from specialist sources will demonstrate contributions to the English vocabulary. The development, and usage of English words will be examined through directed and assisted presentations and group discussions. Simple projects to stimulate group discussion will be an important part of the course. All that is required is an interest in words, an enquiring mind and a willingness to be delighted at how informative a dictionary can be. You do not have to have previously ‘done’ Latin or Greek (or French or German).
