Whether you're a frequent visitor to Europe or just an armchair traveler, the surprising and extraordinary stories in Lingo will forever change the way you think about the continent, and may even make you want to learn a new language. Lingo spins the reader on a whirlwind tour of sixty European languages and dialects, sharing quirky moments from their histories and exploring their commonalities and differences. Most European languages are descended from a single ancestor, a language not unlike Sanskrit known as Proto-Indo-European (or PIE for short), but the continent's ever-changing borders and cultures have given rise to a linguistic and cultural diversity that is too often forgotten in discussions of Europe as a political entity. Lingo takes us into today's remote mountain villages of Switzerland, where Romansh is still the lingua franca, to formerly Soviet Belarus, a country whose language was Russified by the Bolsheviks, to Sweden, where up until the 1960s polite speaking conventions required that one never use the word "you" in conversation, leading to tiptoeing questions of the form: "Would herr generaldirektör Rexed like a biscuit?" Spanning six millenia and sixty languages in bite-size chapters, Lingo is a hilarious and highly edifying exploration of how Europe speaks.

This book is collection of language from the perspective of an African American female. As a child she did not know she was poor until she took an economics class in college. Regardless of age most readers especially African Americans will marvel at how the words printed on the pages will move you to tears, spontaneous laughter, surprise and sweet memories of a life captured from individuals ranging in age from 14 to 97. Artie, named after an Uncle (a rich family tradition of naming children prior to their birth) continues to work and teach in the field of Human Resources with a mission to remain a life-long learner, coach, consultant and mentor. She lives in the Chicagoland area with her soul mate of 34 years (and blissfully counting) who thoroughly enjoys spending time with her adult children and ten grandchildren. “People often don’t realize that everyday lingo is a part of something greater.” Artie Murray
