This is one of the very best courses to which I have listened (and I have listened to perhaps 30 so far). The presentation style was exceptionally clear and the information was pitched perfectly for me - not so simple that it was boring for someone who had some knowledge of linguistics already - but not so advanced that only a fellow academic in the topic could understand.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Probably not. It did have some very interesting parts, but I agree with another reviewer that it got too political. Even though I don't necessarily disagree with most of her political views, I didn't decide to listen to the lectures because I wanted a political commentary on language - I was just interested in the development of American English.
Would you be willing to try another one of Professor Natalie Schilling’s performances?
No. I usually love Great Courses, but this was more like a book than lectures. The professor probably knows her stuff, but neither the content nor her delivery were very inspiring.
