Description


In its 122 brief essays, Worlds in Words traces the history and links among key concepts in Western cultures. Beginning with Proto-Indo-European roots, the book follows the development of constellations of meaning in Romance, Germanic, and Slavic languages. The essays examine fundamental verbal images so basic that we take them for granted. From simplicity to complexity, they point out the many-layered stories that simple words tell.
