Speakers of British and American English display some striking differences in their use of grammar. In this detailed survey, John Algeo considers questions such as: •Who lives on a street, and who lives in a street? •Who takes a bath, and who has a bath? •Who says Neither do I, and who says Nor do I? •After 'thank you', who says Not at all and who says You're welcome? •Whose team are on the ball, and whose team isn't? Containing extensive quotations from real-life English on both sides of the Atlantic, collected over the past twenty years, this is a clear and highly organized guide to the differences - and the similarities - between the grammar of British and American speakers. Written for those with no prior knowledge of linguistics, it shows how these grammatical differences are linked mainly to particular words, and provides an accessible account of contemporary English in use.

Indispensable for those who edit both British and American English, to help untangle the intricacies of usage patterns.

There are a number of books that cover the differences between British and American English. This is the only one I have seen that concentrates on grammar rather than vocabulary. It covers Standard English in in England and General American. Usages specific to Scotland, Ireland, Ulster, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and areas where English is an established second language are not factored in. So to some degree "British" is a bit misleading.

The entries are well-grounded statistically. Several "corpora" of words, machine-accessible, are used. Principal among these is the Cambridge International Corpus, which included, at the time of accession, 101.9 million examples from Britain and 96.1 millions American examples. The majority from both datasets were written, but there were a substantial number from spoken texts as well.

Almost all headwords are illustrated exclusively by usage examples from British English. This is the chief drawback of the book; American usage is scarcely quoted explicitly, and examples must be supplied by readers. So readers must already have a profound knowledge of English, probably native, to get the full benefit of the book. If both American and British examples were supplied, the value of the book for foreign learners would be increased enormously. As it is, it would probably be rather tedious for the them, as they would spend much time wondering, "now, what would people say in America? I seem to remember ... eh, well, I'm not sure ..."
