From the pages of a 1922 issue of The Literary Digest came the attached review of The American Language (1921) by H.L. Mencken:
"...Americans show superior imaginativeness and resourcefulness; for example, "movie" is better than "cinema"...The American language offers a far greater variety of synonyms than ours; transatlantic equivalents for "drunk" are "Piffled, spifflicated, awry-eyed, tanked, snooted, stewed, ossified, slopped, fiddled, edged, loaded, het-up, frazzled, jugged and burned"
