Description
Students study the debt of English to the two major tongues of classical antiquity in the West. The cognate nature of the Indo-European languages is considered in this basic course in English etymology. Students can expect to experience a large increase in their vocabularies, to learn a systematic way of deducing meanings of new words when a dictionary is not available and to develop the vocabulary of a truly liberally educated person.
