Arguing that speech deviation from "Standard" American English is not wrong, McWhorter focuses on classroom applications to offer teachers, teacher educators and administrators useful basic language principles commonly accepted by linguists, but rarely disseminated to the general public.
"McWhorter's book is a very well-written, entertaining look at language. . . . Teachers willing to spend just a couple hours with the book will find a great deal of information important to their work."-English Journal
