Standard Worldwide American Dictionary English (SWADE)versus Polyglot America: A Survival Kit for Personal-Growth Learners
Standard Worldwide American Dictionary English versus Polyglot America (SWADE v PA), is a wake-up call for Americans, especially those who noticed that many Egyptian protesters during the “Arab Spring” spoke clearer American English than some of our own college graduates. The book also offers a big career-lift to worried Americans, young and old, who want to sharpen their pronunciation, increase the measurable size of their vocabularies, strengthen their public speaking skills, and jump start their self-confidence. This is not a false alarm book. What’s here regarding Standard Worldwide American Dictionary English (SWADE, for short) will ring true to most readers, especially the parts about dictionaries and China. Even more important, since this is primarily a how-to book, most readers will also recognize the need for a strong emphasis, especially today, upon pronunciation, vocabulary, public speaking, and confidence building.
