Descrizione

Ernest Walker says in his book on English surnames, be doomed to the waste-basket by harassed executors. If the opportunity offers in future I shall undoubtedly return to the subject. For one thing,li am eager to attempt a more scientific examination of the grammar of the American vulgar speech, here discussed briefly in Chapter VI. For another thing, I hope to make further inquiries into the subject of American surnames of non-english origin. Various other fields invite. No historical study of American pronunciation exists; the influ ence of German, irish-english, Yiddish and other such immi grant dialects upon American has never been investigated; there is no adequate treatise on Merican geographical names. Contributions of materials and suggestions for a possible revised edition of the present book will reach me if addressed to me in care of the publisher at 220 West Forty-second Street, New York. I shall also be very grateful for the correction of errors, some perhaps typographical but others due to faulty information or mistaken judgment.
