Overview

Years in the military front—plenty of them—yielded this compilation that reveals an amalgam of contrasting use of the English language, serving to reveal a face of American culture unique to each divergent section of the nation.

As Billy Lawson points out in the Foreword, American Expressions could be a source of enjoyment for the older generations, revelation for the younger ones, and a tool of adaptation for those immigrants wishing to be quickly integrated to their newfound communities.

Of course, the hip hop and city smart aleck generation might be tempted to turn a sharply pointed nose to this little gem, but who knows even 50 Cent’s wisdom might find life here?
