If we’re all speaking American English why do we sound so different? Volunteer Bob Lamp will show how an informal survey of the words or phrases we choose can reveal where we are from or want to be from. We’ll also have fun with regional accents and expressions (Brooklynese anyone?) and delight in the variety of American English. All this and more fun based loosely on the book Speaking American: How Y’All Youse and You Guys Talk by Josh Katz.
