a detailed look at grammar, style, diction, word formation, gender, social

students, writers, academicians and anybody concerned about proper writing
This book is designed to inform you about current problems in English usage
so you can make intelligent decisions when communicating. When confronted
with a choice about a usage, you may ask yourself a number of questions: Has
this usage been criticized for some reason in the past? If so, are these
criticisms substantial? What are the linguistic and social issues involved?
Have people frequently applied this usage in the past, and for how long?
What do well-respected writers think of the usage today? You will find
answers to these and many other questions in this book.
We have organized the book by subject—instead of presenting a single
alphabetical list of entries—so you can explore issues that interest you
in some depth. At the same time we have organized individual chapters
alphabetically in an effort to make it easy to find what you are looking for.
