Lynn Murphy, an old American Dialect Society hand (one of those people I only know through the ADS email list, which I first joined in 1992, though she hasn’t been very active on it for a number of years), has a new blog: Separated By A Common Language, about the differences between British and American Englishes. She’s an American linguist living in the United Kingdom.
