Seth Dixon's curator insight, November 7, 2017 2:42 PM

This TED-ED video (and lesson) shows how the connotations of English words often times depend on the linguistic root (sweat--Germanic, perspire--Latin). English has obviously changed much over the years, but this other TED-ED video (and lesson) also shows some good language family information and traces it back to proto-Indo-European roots.

Matt Manish's curator insight, February 16, 1:19 PM
It is very interesting to see how far the English language has come and how much is has changed over the past 1600 years. Adding to that it is intriguing to see what other languages had an influence on English. I knew that German and English were very similar languages which made sense that German had a large influence on the English language. Although, it did take me by surprise that French has made quite an impact on English as well. Also, that royal Englishmen spoke French for three centuries. That piece of information shocked me since France and England have had such a historic rivalry that lasted for centuries. Overall, I enjoyed this video and the border maps helped me to better understand the evolution of the English language.

1961, On the Road To Equality - The Freedom Riders  A Historical Road Movie -

Ajoutée le 15 janv. 2017     1961, ON THE ROAD TO EQUALITY


Toute L'Histoire :  An Excellent Historical French Youtube Channel


https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_iuTGIGPWQBLGbd_TgwB-Q


Au cœur de la lutte pour les droits civiques aux États-Unis, un épisode est méconnu des Français : les FREEDOM RIDES, ou bus de la liberté. C’est pourtant l’une des formes de protestation qui a inspiré la Marche des Beurs quelque vingt ans plus tard. L’idée : parcourir le pays pour mettre à mal la ségrégation instaurée.


Plus de 50 ans après, un road movie historique à travers l’Alabama et le Mississippi, part sur les traces de près de 450 militants, noirs et blancs, hommes et femmes. Nous retrouverons plusieurs d’entre eux dans un récit de leur lutte pour établir l’égalité.


Tous les dimanche à 19h la chaîne Toute L'Histoire vous propose de découvrir un nouveau documentaire: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_iu...
