The practical stylist by Sheridan Warner Baker( Book )

67 editions published between 1962 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 2,148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Language, its nature, and its uses have always been controversial topics. This engaging study brings into focus those highly charged years in America Between 1776 and 1850 when questions of language mirrored the social and political arguments of the time and generated even more arguments on both sides of the Atlantic over what American English was, what it might become, and what it ought to be. With a strong narrative line, The Politics of American English shows that by the middle of the 19th century, America had a version of English recognizably its own. To explain how this happened and why, Simpson alternates between theoretical questions of language and the way these questions make themselves felt in literature. His premise, that language is an important organizing principle in the life of human beings, one that is experienced individually as well a collectively, is brilliantly set forth

Over 100 items are new to this edition, including Queer Theory, Reader-Response Theory, Cultural Studies, Anxiety of Influence, Logocentrism, Orientalism, and Saussurean Linguistics, to name only a few. Entries generally range from a few words to summary essays with bibliographies for further study, and cross-references lead from definitions to larger concepts.

Here the reader will find in Section I, Occasional Verse: 'The Masquerade'; the unfinished 'Cantos'; a burlesque of Pope's' Dunciad'; 'Plain Truth'; 'A Dialogue between a Beau's Head and his Heels'; 'An Epistle to Mr. Lyttleton'; as well as three epilogues and a prologue. In Section II, Occasional Prose: 'A Full Vindication of the Dutchess Dowager of Marlborough'; the translation of Aristophanes' 'Plutus, the God of Riches'; Preface to Sarah Fielding's Adventures of David Simple; 'The Female Husband'; 'Ovid's Art of Love Paraphrased'; Preface and letters xl-xliv of Sarah Fielding's Familiar Letters between the Principal Characters in David Simple; and 'A Fragment of a Comment on I.
