Speaking Freely (A Guided Tour Of American English From Plymouth Rock To Silicon Valley), Soukhanov, Anne H. / Flexner, Stuart Berg

Soukhanov, Anne H. / Flexner, Stuart Berg: Oxford University Press; New York, New York 1997 019510692X / 9780195106923
First Printing Hard Cover Fine in Fine Dust Jacket: 8.75 x 11.25 in.: 472 pages 

004676004676: Dustjacket now protected by a new Brodart Mylar Cover. Scarce, Out Of Print, Book. Here we discover not only the origin and history of many of our most delightful words but also the changing cultural conditions that produced them. With chapters on Americanisms, cyberspace, advertising, fighting words, fitness, geography, economics, sex, crime, gender, generation gaps, and many other subjects, Speaking Freely covers the whole spectrum of language in America from the Pilgrims to the present. In the chapter on American's love affair with booze, for instance, we have a rollicking history of all the delectable words we've devised to describe the condition of drunkenness and its insalubrious effects. If, for example, you were to find yourself frequently groggified, half-shaved, full as a fiddler's fart, balmy, owly-eyed, pifflicated, comboozelated, tanglefooted, ossified, petrified, snockered, or wazzocked, you would often suffer the jim-jams, the jitters, the heebie-jeebies, or the screaming meamies the next day, and would eventually come to be seen as an elbow-bender, a guzzler, a rumhead, swiller, or tosspot. Speaking Freely also explains the droves of new expressions entering our vocabularies. With over 400 illustrations and a generous offering of quotations from Thomas Jefferson and Mark Twain to Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Hardwick, and many others, Speaking Freely takes the lid off the American language and shows us where it is, where it's been, and why it's ours. "

First Printing Hard Cover Very Good in Very Good Dust Jacket: 6.25 x 9.5 in.: 349 pages 

006438006438: Printing Number Line (9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1) . Dustjacket now protected by a new Brodart Mylar Cover. Top edge of dustjacket has small stain on inside. Scarce, Out Of Print, Book. "In this book Greenawalt explores the three-way relationship between the idea of freedom of speech, the law of crimes, and the many uses of language. He begins by considering free speech as a political principle, and after a thorough and incisive analysis of the justifications commonly advanced for freedom of speech, looks at the kinds of communications to which the principle of free speech applies. He then turns to an examination of communications for which criminal liability is fixed. Focusing on threats and solicitations to crime, Greenawalt attempts to determine whether liability for such communications seriously conflicts with freedom of speech. In the second half of the book he goes on to develop the significance of his conclusions for American constitutional law, addressing such questions as what should be considered "speech" within the meaning of the First Amendment, and what tests the courts should employ in deciding whether particular criminal statutes should be held constitutional. He concludes that the issues are too complex to yield simple solutions, and insists that the protection of the First Amendment can be reduced neither to one justification nor to one all-purpose test of coverage.
