"The Blackwell History of the Latin Language" charts the development of Latin from its prehistoric origins in the Indo-European language family, through the earliest texts, to the creation of the 'Classical language of Cicero and Vergil', and examines the impact of the spread of spoken Latin through the Roman Empire. Accessibly and intelligently written, this is the first book in English in more than 50 years to provide comprehensive coverage of the history of the language.The authors make use of contemporary work in linguistics, particularly the insights gained from modern sociolinguistic research, to provide up-to-date commentary on key linguistic issues in the field. Offering a full account of the language's transformation in the context of the rise and fall of ancient Rome, they examine a number of broad topics, including the impact of Greek, the linguistic implications of Christianity, the tension between written and spoken regional varieties of the language, the lives and social positions of Latin speakers, and the fate of the language in late antiquity and beyond. This text includes maps and glossary as well as fully translated and annotated sample texts that illustrate the different stages of the language. Readable and fully up- to-date, "The Blackwell History of the Latin Language" is an ideal text for both students and scholars.
