Summary
<Span style=""font-style:italic;"">The American English Compendium is a fun way to explore the nuances of the English language-learn that a group of lions is called a pride; a group of whales, a pod; and a group of owls, a parliament. This edition offers fresh chapters which include spelling, punctuation, and pronunciation; and even Twitterspeak and other online vernacular. <br />
