Otto Jespersen

Collected English Writings

Otto Jespersen is one of the foremost philologists of recent times. A genius phoneticist and a revolutionary force in the teaching of languages, Jespersen's contribution to the understanding of language cannot be overrated. This set offers an unprecedented opportunity to own all of his most influential works written in English in one superb collection. It includes his much referenced 'Modern English Grammar', 'The Philosophy of Grammar', 'How to Teach a Foreign Language', as well as a tome documenting his own constructed language 'Novial Lexike.'
