This book is an accessible, clear and accurate reference book which is a MUST for anyone studying English, or for anyone who always wanted to understand exactly what is meant by the term 'onomatopoeic'. I am at degree level English now, and have always felt stupid asking for definitions of technical words, or to have things explained to me, and this book has become my bible! And as the saying goes, I'll bet there's many of you out there who still don't quite grasp exactly what a sonnet involves, or who still pretend to understand the terms 'sibilance' and 'iambic pentameter', and daren't ask! Now there's no need, because this bok hold the key to all your terminology nightmares. It's a very useful book, and is by no means full of jargon. Whether you're at degree level, GCSE level; or just want to know more, this book is an essential and very good read!
