Dorothy Parker : a bio-bibliography
New York: Knopf, ; pp. M4 A detailed account of the development of American English and its divergence from British English. The multitude of examples are loosely organized in chapters on historical developments, influences on American English, its relationship with British English, pronunciation, spelling, the common speech, proper names, slang, and the future of American English. Supplement I updates chapters through the relationship with British English; Supplement II , from pronunciation through slang. Non-English dialects are briefly discussed in an appendix to the fourth edition.
Two indexes in each volume: words and phrases; persons, subjects, and titles. Stylistically entertaining but hardly impartial, full of errors, weak in organization, and emphasizing description and accumulation of examples rather than analysis, American Language has had a mixed reception. Reviews: supplements Raven I. Council of Learned Socs. John A. Garraty and Mark C. Supplement 1. Paul Betz and Carnes. Supplement 2. A68 Four indexes: biographees; contributors with a list of contributions ; state or country of birth; occupation or realm of renown. Supplement 2 ends with a cumulative, updated index of occupations or realms of renown classified under 17 topical areas.
The online version is updated quarterly with new biographies, illustrations, internal and external hyperlinks, and revisions to existing entries and bibliographies; unfortunately, the Web site does not identify revised articles. A 6 July e-mail communication from Carnes suggests that revisions will be limited to factual matters.
