Empires of the Word

Empires of the Word: A Language History of the World
I checked this one out a year or two ago, but never really got into it. But it sounds so very good that I had to give it another chance, and I enjoyed it much more this time around. It sounds silly, but last time I was annoyed the author doesn't consider Arabic to be one language. Anyway. I didn't get through the entire book, but did read about two-thirds before it needed to go back to the library. It's one I'd like to own, because there's so much in there I'd want to go back to.

Recommended.
