That's not English : Britishisms, Americanisms, and what our English says about us by Erin Moore( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An expat's witty and insightful exploration of English and American cultural differences through the lens of language that will leave readers gobsmacked. In That's Not English, the seemingly superficial differences between British and American English open the door to a deeper exploration of a historic and fascinating cultural divide. In each of the thirty chapters, Erin Moore explains a different word we use that says more about us than we think. For example, "Quite" exposes the tension between English reserve and American enthusiasm; in "Moreish," she addresses our snacking habits. In "Partner," she examines marriage equality; in "Pull," the theme is dating and sex; "Cheers" is about drinking; and "Knackered" covers how we raise our kids. The result is a cultural history in miniature and an expatriate's survival guide. American by birth, Moore is a former book editor who specialized in spotting British books--including Eats, Shoots & Leaves--for the US market. She's spent the last seven years living in England with her Anglo American husband and a small daughter with an English accent. That's Not English is the perfect companion for modern Anglophiles and the ten million British and American travelers who visit one another's countries each year

From the authors of contemporary classic The Spirituality of Imperfection comes this long-awaited sequel. A great master once said, 'The shortest distance between a human being and truth is a story.' In Experiencing Spirituality, Ernest Kurtz and Katherine Ketcham take readers on a journey through storytelling as a means of self-discovery. Recounting and interpreting great wisdom stories from all ages and all cultures, as well as telling many of their own, the authors shed light on such experiences as awe, wonder, humor, confusion, and forgiveness. In story after story, seekers look to those whose lives reveal a special quality-sometimes called spirituality-and ask the masters what they must do to attain that same quality. The answer is simple: 'Come, follow me, and see how I live.' Experiencing Spirituality teaches through the example of human experience
