Mencken went on to build himself a reputation as one of America's most brilliant writers and literary critics. The work shows not only how American English differs from British English but how the 300 year American experience shaped American dialect

Mencken went on to build himself a reputation as one of America's most brilliant writers and literary critics. His basic approach was to question everything and to accept no limits on personal freedom. He attacked organized religion, American cultural and literary standards, and every aspect of American life that he found shallow, ignorant, or false - which was almost everything. The work shows not only how American English differs from British English but how the 300 year American experience shaped American dialect. Thus the book, still considered a classic in its field, is both a linguistic and social history of the United States.

The one star rating is for the printed book received--this is the second time I've ended up with a cheap print-on-demand publication of an apparently Public Domain book that you'd be better of finding on-line and printing your own personal copy. At least this one is a font I can read--(BookDepository uses the same print-on-demand...but they were so cheap, they went microscopic (5pt?) font...). I'll keep this as it's not worth my time to return. Would have skipped the purchase, had I realized what kind of print version I was getting--the cover paper is a terrible texture, and the overall book doesn't contain publication information--no proper end pages. This is sub-par, not even up to college journal publication standards.

A minor confection. Amusingly, the ostensible gravamen of the book is a brief collection of clichés exactly similar to Flaubert's "Dictionnaire des idées reçues." Most of the book is the purported introduction, a moderately witty gallimaufry of Menckensian generalities about America. Sadly, it's more dated than most of Mencken's philippics.
