Years in the military frontplenty of themyielded 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.
