Title: Everyday English
Subtitle: American English 1781-1921
Written By: Richard Grant White
Series Title: History and Development of World Englishes
Description:

America's geographical separation from Britain, combined with a range of fresh experiences and contacts, led to the emergence of a new vocabulary and a distinct style of the English language. The development of American English attracted the attention of educationalists and philologists, and this collection reprints a wide range of source texts written on the subject between 1781 and 1921. Bringing together a selection of the most important texts in an accessible form for the first time, this comprehensive eight-volume set is of key importance to scholars and students interested in researching the historical development of English in America.

Available individually, or as part of the eight-volume set American English: 1781-1921. For a complete list of volume titles in this set, see list for American English: 1781-1921 [ISBN: 0-415-27964-X].
