World War II is in full swing and America is fighting furiously, for the first time in history, in two major wars on two foreign soils when approximately 50 million people will lose their lives. At age 81, Ronold Ray shares his unique experience thru basic training, serving in the Pacific Campaign and the Occupational Forces of Japan. Growing up in the Great Depression on a farm nestled in the lush, rolling hills of Central Texas in a family of twelve, it is a story about Ronold, along with his three best high school buddies who are restless and eager to join the service! Action-packed, full of near misses and pranks, Ray's adventures include eccentric and temperamental characters, unruly animals, a brush with the FBI, a tea party with Japanese officials, the War Crime Trials and the utter horrors of war. His life's lessons are sprinkled with humor even under the direst circumstances as told in Grenades, Guitars, Guts & Glory! Ray's inspiring story gives subsequent generations a glimpse of what life was like then, the sacrifices made by the men and women of this foregone era, and how the country pulled together at a time, like no other, to defend the precious freedoms of this great nation.

While there are numerous investigations of the impact English has exerted on Spanish, the reverse language contact scenario has received comparatively little attention. This book sheds light on the Spanish influence on the English vocabulary since 1801, offering the first systematic analysis of the multitude of words which have been taken over from Spanish and its national varieties over the past few centuries. The results provided by this study rely on the evaluation of a comprehensive lexicographical sample of 1355 Spanish borrowings collected from the Oxford English Dictionary Online. The focus of linguistic concern here is on the chronological distribution of the various Spanish-derived words, their contextual usage, stylistic function and sense development from their earliest attested use in English until today. The present-day use of the borrowings is illustrated with documentary evidence retrieved from a variety of English language corpora.
