Book Description E. P. Dutton & Co. Inc. (1929). New York., 1929. Hardcover. Condition: Collectible-Very Good. Cloth. In this small book the author writes about the spoken language and makes comparisons between the English as spoken in England and that spoken in America. He quotes: "Perhaps the most apparent general characteristic of American speech, so f ar as cadence is concerned, is its levelness of tone. The voice rises and falls within a relatively narrow range, and with few abrupt transitions from high to low or low to high. To British ears American speech often sounds hesitating, monotonous and indecisive, and British speech, on the other hand, is likely to seem to Americans abrupt, explosive and manneristic".
