I can't remember where I first heard of this book. If someone here
recommended it, thank you very much. If I didn't see something about
it here, then *I* recommend it.

"The Prodigal Tongue: the love-hate relation between American and
British English" by Lynne Murphy.

Thanks for reminding me. I've added it to my list.

Her blog is always interesting, though it hasn't been updated much recently:
