To find information on this topic, you may want to begin by searching one of our multidisciplinary databases such as Academic Search Complete or ProQuest Central. Both can be accessed at the Library's Databases A-Z page.

Once you've accessed the database, use Boolean operators (AND, OR, NOT) to build your search with keywords. For example:

English Language AND (evolution OR history) AND United States

To narrow your search even further, consider clarifying what you mean by "way of speaking." For instance, you may want to focus on changes with regard to a particular dialect, pronunciation, specific idioms, etc.
