  • English as she is and was.

    Another very enjoyably offering from Bill Bryson. It is an easy to read and enjoyable offering. I am amazed at the research he has obviously put into this work. Well worth a read. Oh, in fact in Australia a tub of ice çream in Victoria is a dixie not pixie and a bomborra is a wave breaking on an off shore reef. Give this book a try you will learn and enjoy.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • The Mother Tongue

    Fantastic .No surprise that Bryson exhibits his accustomed expertise in language and exhaustive research accompanied by a very deep sensitivity when comparing American English and British English. Whatever topic he chooses to write about he treats with the utmost sympathy and respect and an indefatigable amount of research.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Very Interesting

    A full and very well written book on the English language and it's uses and a little of the history of this most amazing language. We as natural born speakers of it, do not realise what a tangled language we have. Thank you Bill for another entertaining and also serious book.

    Thanks for your feedback!
