History of the English Language
The writer notes with regard to the imitation of other languages as a cause of linguistic change, that in this respect 'our language has received no trifling mutation, or rather amendment; the learned have adopted almost all technical terms of arts and sciences from the Greek and Latin, for the sake of neatness and elegance' (104).
