Defining American English

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In the age of online content, we can never be certain that our audience will speak the same variety of English we do. The session will discuss how lexicographers analyze and present information about global variations in English usage, exploring the pitfalls of writing American English for a global audience — and how your dictionary can help.
