Evolving English

There’ll be an exhibit at the British Library over the next few months entitled “Evolving English.” According to the exhibit’s website, “In this ground-breaking exhibition, the roots of Old English, slang dictionaries, medieval manuscripts, advertisements and newspapers from around the world come together – alongside everyday texts and dialect sound recordings. Follow the social, cultural and historical influences on the English language . . . and see how it’s still evolving today.” Thank you, Languagehat, for the notice.
