The British Library has opened a new exhibit called 'Evolving English,'
tracing the history of the English language up to the present day.  They
have established a website and a blog to accompany the exhibit, to be found
at http://www.bl.uk/evolvingenglish/

The curators say: 'Evolving English is the first exhibition (running 12 Nov
2010 - 3 Apr 2011) to explore the English language in all its national and
international diversity. Iconic collection items are set alongside engaging
everyday texts and sound recordings to show the many social, cultural and
historical strands from which the language is woven. Huge events and
learning programme too.'
