A person that is not interested in knowing origins of words, but a very theoretical account of language history. I love to read authors that tells you little stories of how a word was created and developed, and this was not it.
I have to tell you that although I love other titles this is the second Great Courses that I cannot listen to the end and find myself thinking I wasted my money.
Her voice is ok, the material was boring.
Intense disappointment. I read all Isaac Asimov history books and since then I'm fascinated by the little anecdotes about words, their origins and development. I was very happy to be able to dig more into it and found the rug taken out under my feet.
