This is the most comprehensive text I have found about the Native speakers and new users of the American English Language, and what part everyone has played in developing it from where it was in 1910 or so to the present. A fabulous work! Buy this book! Read it for pleasure, keep it for reference. Probably intended as a text book, I highly recommend it for fun! It is like a deep well of cool water one dips into again and again.
