Mother Tongue: The Story of the English Language

Bryson, B.

Additional notes

Chapter 1 gets started on describing some of the issues that have contributed to making English a world language. Chapter 12, English as a World Language, goes into more detail and would provide an entry point for learners.  It is amusingly written but makes the case for some aspects of the popularity of English, its diffusion through an Empire empire and its dominance through American English.  Chapter 16 is of relevance, too, as it sketches out areas of further possible discussion.
