right up to date. Offering new examples and suggestions for further

Abstract:

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].
