Introduction to American English

First edition
By GUNNEL TOTTIE, University of Zurich

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.
