English Words: History and Structure is concerned primarily with the
learned vocabulary of English, the words borrowed from the classical
languages and French. It is both an introduction to some of the basic
principles of linguistic analysis and a helpful manual for vocabulary
discernment and enrichment. Designed to deepen and strengthen the
knowledge acquired in the classroom, exercises to accompany each
chapter and further readings on recent loans and the legal and medical
vocabulary of English are available online at
http://uk.cambridge.org/linguistics/resources/englishwords.

An introduction to the textbook;
1. Word origins;
2. The background of English;
3. Composition of the early modern and modern English vocabulary;
4. Smaller than words: morphemes and types of morphemes;
