English is full of snuffbumble
The story of English fascinates me as few subjects do. It’s rich, quirky, and a true underdog story.
This irreverent YouTube video outlines the rise of English from its Anglo-Saxon / Old Englisc* days through the Norman Conquest, the King James Bible, the rise of science, the spread of the British Empire, up to Internet speak and abbreviations. Take a look!
And what is snuffbumble, you ask? The answer: nonsense 🙂
*The digraph ‘sc’ is the Old English version of today’s ‘sh’ sound.
