    american English

    Does America have its own books gouverning the rules of grammar or does it use those formed by Lowth? If it does have its own grammar books, when did they form? Thanks

    Your questions are interesting and lead me to wonder - is this background research for a thesis?

    Back when I was in school (shortly after the Earth's crust had cooled), we were always taught from the various Warriner's grammar books.
