American Speech is concerned principally with the English language in the Western Hemisphere, although articles dealing with English in other parts of the world, the influence of other languages by or on English, and linguistic theory are also published. Since its founding in 1925, American Speech has been one of the foremost publications in its field. Regular features include a book review section and a "Miscellany" section devoted to brief essays and notes.
The Moore Library holds only v.2 (1968)-v.15 (1981) of this title and does not have full text access through databases.
If you need an article from this journal that falls outside of those dates, you may request it through Interlibrary Loan or visit The College of New Jersey Library (TCNJ), which has it in print and online from 1967 on. A TCNJ librarian will be happy to assist you. Map of Rider to TCNJ
