    I read this as a layman interested in our language I found it interesting in parts, dry in other parts, but overall an informative read The authors are clearly descriptionists rather than prescriptivists , meaning that they view change in language as a normal part of life and not as something to be held back or frozen The book is written for those like me who are not linguists, although there is still some fairly technical language in parts.
