Summary
When did English become American? What distinctive qualities made it American? What role have America's democratizing impulses, and its vibrantly heterogeneous speakers, played in shaping our language and separating it from the mother tongue? Richard Bailey's Speaking American investigates the history and continuing evolution of our language from the sixteenth century to the present. --from publisher description
