Founding Grammars by Ostler, Rosemarie
Founding Grammars: How Early America's War over Words Shaped Today's Language
by Ostler, Rosemarie
 
Standard grammar and accurate spelling are widely considered hallmarks of a good education, but their exact definitions are more contentious. Ostler shows how linguistic founding fathers like Noah Webster, Tory expatriate Lindley Murray, and post-Civil War literary critic Richard Grant White all played prominent roles in creating the grammar rules we've come to use, abuse -- and occasionally discard -- over the years.
