    Default Lingo by Gaston Dorren

    This is a terrific book that everyone will find interesting, especially our GR cunning linguists.

    It explains in very unesoteric terms how the many European languages evolved from an ancient and now forgotten language, Proto Indo European (PIE) and it's quite fascinating. How Finnish and Hungarian are close cousins while being on opposite sides of the continent and how French hasn't evolved linguistically very much from its Latin mother.

    The writing is accessible and not at all bogged down in academic jargon and skilfully explains some potentially quite difficult concepts. Wonderful stuff: I love it.

    Available on Kindle

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Thank you. This is the kind of shit I live for. The Story of English was one of my favourite books/series.
