#1497 - 04/19/00 05:13 PM Honest Words
This is from the Peterborough column of the Daily Telegraph.
Promoting his book The Year 1000 at an Oldie launch yesterday Robert Lacey paid tribute to the endurance of Anglo-Saxon vocabulary with a quotation from Churchill: "We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills: we shall never surrender."
"All of these are Anglo-Saxon words," pronounced Lacey proudly. Then, after a moments thought: "Except the last one, which is a French concept."
