Home Of The Greatest Contributor

IMG_3137

In August I visited the home of the greatest contributor to the English Language the world has ever seen.

This man:

Coined approximately 1,500 words;

Helped contribute to the standardisation of the English language (standardization for the Americans although we are talking about the English language here);

Ended up embedding many of his own words and phrases into the English language;

Made the English language more vibrant and expressive.

In my opinion one of the most important people in history. Imagine the English language without him.

Who am I talking about?
