The Adventure of English: the evolution of the English language

"The Adventure of English is a British television series (ITV) on the history of the English presented by Melvyn Bragg as well as a companion book, also written by Bragg. The series ran in 2003.

The series and the book are cast as an adventure story, or the biography of English as if it were a living being, covering the history of the language from its modest beginnings around 500 AD as a minor Germanic dialect to its rise as a truly established global language.

In the television series, Bragg explains the origins and spelling of many words based on the times in which they were introduced into the growing language that would eventually become modern English."

Pakeha: New Zealanders of British or European Ancestry

"How people choose to label themselves is a way of establishing their identity. While 'pakeha' has a variety of meanings, it is principally used to refer to New Zealanders of British or European ancestry. For people several generations removed from their European or British origins, describing themselves, or being described as, Pakeha can mean that they identify as part of a culture unique to this country. The term New Zealander, which is often suggested as an option, refers to nationality, not culture. The descendants of early British colonists are different from Maori, but all are New Zealanders. Chinese and Samoan New Zealanders are as different from each other as people of Dutch or Indian descent, but they all share the same nationality."

(New Zealand Human Rights Commission)

[I am a Pakeha. Until I left Aotearoa/New Zealand I took it for granted that I could identify myself this way. There were even occasions when I found it annoying that I was required to do so on official forms. But since moving away from Aotearoa I find myself feeling quite proud of being a Pakeha New Zealander.]
