Before the present author ever became associated with Albert C.Baugh’s A History of the
English Language, several generations of teachers and students had appreciated its
enduring qualities. Not least of these, and often remarked upon, was the full attention
paid to the historical and cultural setting of the development of the language. This
original emphasis has made it possible for subsequent editions to include discussions of
current issues and varieties of English in ways that could not have been specifically
foreseen in 1935. The fifth edition continues this updating by expanding the sections on
African American Varnacular English and Hispanic American English, adding a section
on Gender Issues and Linguistic Change, and incorporating small changes throughout.
Once again global events have affected global English and necessitated revisions,
especially in the first and last chapters.
