Summary
"Is the Growing Influence of Spanish threatening to displace English in the United States? Are America's grammatical standards in serious decline? Has the media saturation of our culture homogenized our speech? These and other questions about American English catapulted Robert MacNeil and William Cran, coauthors of the language classic The Story of English, on a cross-country journey in search of answers. An intriguing follow-up to The Story of English, Do You Speak American? is the tale of the surprising discoveries they made along the way. Book jacket."--Jacket
