When did English become American? What distinctive qualities made it American? What role have America's democratizing impulses, and its vibrantly heterogeneous speakers, played in shaping our language and separating it from the mother tongue?

Speaking American explores—and celebrates—the endless variety and remarkable inventiveness that have always been at the heart of American English.
