详细描述

Is it true (as we are often told) that creeping Americanisms are ruining our language? As an American linguist working in Britain, Lynne Murphy is well placed to weigh up the evidence and to share examples of misunderstandings. With a combination of humo(u)r and scepticism/skepticism she examines the myths surrounding transatlantic differences, shows that many American words and usages have British origins and investigates where the English language is really going.
