ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the constant reiteration against terrorism in the public speeches delivered by various political leaders in the U.S. According to the author, both former President George Bush and President George W. Bush long ago made a point of adopting the speech habit to pass as just-plain-folks, but now it has spread to just about everyone who speaks publicly. Contributing to the death of English language is the constant reiteration that the U.S. is not making war on a race, religion, nation, or region, but on terrorism.
