The Kings English - 100 phrases in 3 Minutes [HD]

http://kingsenglish.info...In 2011 there will be many celebrations to mark the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible. This blog is just one attempt to raise awareness about the impact of this translation on the English speaking world. Throughout 2011 I will blog on a phrase each day that has passed into common parlance: popular phrases like “labour of love”, “beast of burden”, “wits’ end” and “scapegoat”; but also phrases that should be more popular, like “filthy lucre” and “gird up thy loins”.

The History of English in Ten Minutes - OpenLearn - Open University | Babylon | Scoop.it

Where did the phrase ‘a wolf in sheep’s clothing’ come from? And when did scientists finally get round to naming sexual body parts? Voiced by Clive Anderson, this entertaining romp through 'The History of English' squeezes 1600 years of history into 10 one-minute bites, uncovering the sources of English words and phrases from Shakespeare and the King James Bible to America and the Internet. Bursting with fascinating facts, the series looks at how English grew from a small tongue into a major global language before reflecting on the future of English in the 21st century.
