Beschreibung:
Though there is a contingent of linguists who fight the fact, our language is always changingnot only through slang, but sound, syntax, and words' meanings as well. Debunking the myth of pure standard English, tackling controversial positions, and eschewing politically correct arguments, linguist John Mc Whorter considers speech patterns and regional accents to demonstrate just how the changes do occur. Wielding reason and humor, Mc Whorter ultimately explains why we must embrace these changes, ultimately revealing our American English in all its variety, expressiveness, and power.
