Abstract

The present work is a collection of readings and language notes which sketch out a picture of North America and aim to stimulate interest in further investigations and studies. More specifically, Part 1 offers a series of selected passages introducing American Culture, while Part 2 focuses on American English as a language variety, comparing it to British English. In particular, aspects of spelling, lexis, grammar and pronunciation are accounted for. The examples given in the notes are taken from reference books, movies and from the Corpus of Contemporary American English (COCA).
