Introduction to American English by Gunnel Tottie

Book Description

An Introduction to American English explains American English in the context of American life, history, and institutions, while also making comparisons with British English. This book includes chapters on spelling, pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary which discuss how the language reflects American lifestyles and how new words are created. Coverage also includes language use and politeness; regional, social, and ethnic dialects, such as African-American English; and language politics. Much of the material presented is viewed within the framework of American history, government and education. Every chapter is followed by a set of recommended readings and references, some of which include Internet resources. An Introduction to American English is the ideal resource for non-native speakers and undergraduates studying of American English, as well as teachers of English as a second or foreign language.
