|Edited by||Michael Adams|
American Speech is a quarterly academic journal of the American Dialect Society, established in 1925 and published by Duke University Press. It focuses primarily on the English language used in the Western Hemisphere, but also publishes contributions on other varieties of English, outside influences on the language, and linguistic theory.
The journal was established in 1925 by Kemp Malone, Louise Pound, and Arthur G. Kennedy "to present information about English in America in a form appealing to general readers", and was inspired by H. L. Mencken. It became the official journal of the American Dialect Society in 1970.
