Ever wanted to yak with the Yankees or speak the Big Easy? Well, travel with American Voices across the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean to experience both familiar and little-known dialects that are thriving despite the homogenizing pressure exerted by our mass-communication culture. Edited by acclaimed linguist, Walt Wolfram, and consultant editor of Language Magazine, Ben Ward, this collection gives readers a new understanding of language diversity through an engaging look at regional, ethnic, and sociocultural dialects such as African American, Chicano, Cajun, and Jewish English.
