American English is Better than British

<— Prev    |    Next —>

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."
