Publisher's Summary

We explore the rise of powerful non-English linguistic forces in the United States. Starting at Plymouth Rock where the Pilgrim Fathers landed in 1620, Melvyn Bragg follows the development of English in the American colony - from the War of Independence and the founding of the first capital, Philadelphia, right through to the controversial contemporary issues of Ebonics and the rise of Hispanic English or ‘Spanglish’.
