Images of English : a cultural history of the language by Richard W Bailey( Book )

35 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,046 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Images of English demonstrates how opinions of the English language reflect prejudice and hope, bigotry and pride, scorn and celebration. Richard Bailey examines the attitudes of authors, critics, and commentators toward the English language and shows how their comments offer insight into the social conditions of their times. Images of English is the first attempt to focus exclusively on beliefs about English as a reflection of society itself- some of which tout the language as nearly perfect while others signal its imminent decline. -- Back cover

When did English become American? What distinctive qualities made it American?

Richard Bailey's Speaking American investigates the history and continuing evolution of our language from the sixteenth century to the present. --from publisher description

Nineteenth-century English by Richard W Bailey( Book )

15 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Six aspects of nineteenth-century English are treated in separate chapters: writing, sounds, words, slang, grammar, and voices. In each domain, innovation and obsolescence are discussed as they were observed by contemporary writers. Thus Bailey shows how linguistic details gained powerful social meaning in the emergent stratification by class, region, race, and gender of the anglophone community. An abundance of quotations provides insight into the way English was used. Illustrations and drawings from nineteenth-century sources show how English looked and how people envisioned themselves using the language. Nineteenth-Century English will be of interest to historians of English language and literature and scholars in cultural studies, anthropology, and linguistics as well as the general reader
