O Swallow, Swallow, flying, flying South, Fly to her, and fall upon her gilded eaves, And tell her, tell her, what I tell to thee. O tell her, Swallow, thou that knowest each, That bright and fierce and fickle is the South, And dark and true and tender is the north.Tennyson

Members of the American Dialect Society (www.americandialect.org) study English language use among people living in north America. They analyze how other languages influence English-speaking north Americans, and how, in turn, north Americans influence speakers of other languages.

[...] The image superimposed on Ricci's field of view by his visor display showed a pair of guards in hooded parkas, goggles, and wool scarves taking relaxed strides along their patrol of the building's north side.

My solution to the problem would be to tell [the north Vietnamese Communists] frankly that they've got to draw in their horns and stop their aggression or we're going to bomb them into the Stone Age. And we would shove them back into the Stone Age with Air power or Naval power—not with ground forces.curtis lemay
