Speakers of British and American English display some striking differences in their use of grammar. In this detailed survey, John Algeo considers questions such as: "Who lives on a street, and who lives in a street? Who takes a bath, and who has a bath? "Who says Neither do I, and who says Nor do I? |After 'thank you', who says Not at all and who says You're welcome? Whose team are on the ball, and whose team isn't? Containing extensive quotations from real-life English on both sides of the Atlantic, collected over the past twenty years, this is a clear and highly organized guide to the differences - and the similarities - between the grammar of British and American speakers.

British and American Representations of 9/11: Literature, Politics and the Media

British and American Representations of 9/11: Literature, Politics and the Media By Oana-Celia Gheorghiu
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 274 Pages | ISBN : 3319752499 | 3.14 MB

This book argues that twenty-first-century neorealist fiction is inspired by political and journalistic discourses and, along with them, constitutes one of the many representations of the attacks on September 11 and their outcomes. Adopting a neorealist stance, this book is placed at the intersection of realism and fiction, with often reference to what is perceived as objective writing (media and political texts), not at all so divorced from the practice of literary writings on the event that shook the world on September 11, 2001.

Political and Cultural Perceptions of George Orwell: British and American Views

Political and Cultural Perceptions of George Orwell: British and American Views By Ian Williams
English | PDF | 2017 | 181 Pages | ISBN : 1349952532 | 3.85 MB

This book analyzes George Orwell’s politics and their reception across both sides of the Atlantic. It considers Orwell’s place in the politics of his native Britain and his reception in the USA, where he has had some of his most fervent emulators, exegetists, and detractors. Written by an ex “teenage Maoist” from Liverpool, UK, who now lives and writes in New York, the book points out how often the different strands of opinion derive from “ancestral” ideological struggles within the Communist/Trotskyist movement in the 30’s, and how these often overlook or indeed consciously ignore the indigenous British politics and sociology that did so much to influence Orwell’s political and literary development.
