Description


English as She is Wrote: Showing Curious Ways in which the English Language may be made to Convey Ideas or obscure them is an American humor classic by an anonymous authorm and contains the following excerpt: "Anybody," said an astute lawyer, addressing the jury to whom the opposing counsel had reflected upon inaccuracies in the spelling of his brief--"anybody can write English correctly, but surely a man may be allowed to spell a word in two or three different ways if he likes " This was a claim for independence of action which so commended itself to the jury that it won a verdict for his client. The same plea may be considered in regard to the truly wonderful way in which the mother-tongue is often written, by the educated sometimes as well as by the uneducated.
