Gaston Dorren

This is a fun collection of short essays about European languages. Dorren introduces some of the smaller languages and explains some of the history and quirks of the larger ones. Along the way, he highlights the many ways languages change and interact. The result is a very enjoyable book that may also make you look at language in a new way.
