Description
 
Robert Hendrickson (au). You can hear half a dozen different languages while walking down a single N.Y. City street, but thereís still only one way of speaking that truly characterizes the Big Apple -- New Yawk Tawk. This is a fascinating & useful dictionary of the ethnically diverse & culturally dynamic expressions of the city & its surroundings. It offers more than 2,000 entries, tracing them to their roots in a city defined by its population of immigrants from around the world. Hendrickson draws on advertising, magazines, movies, newspaper, legends, the works of writers like Jimmy Breslin, Damon Runyon & Mario Puzo, & even conversations overhead on the subway to provide a linguistic guide to the greatest city in the world.
