Product Description

About the Author

Henry Watson Fowler (1858-1933) was a translator, lexicographer, and grammarian. With his brother Frank (1870-1918) he compiled the first edition of the Concise Oxford Dictionary (published 1911) and the Pocket Oxford Dictionary (published in 1924, after Franks' death). Frank helped to plan Modern English Usage with his brother but he died before it was published and it was executed by Henry alone. The name Fowler has become synonymous with reliable and accurate reference on all aspects of written English.

Language is always changing, but I lament those changes that occur because of an incorrect usage becoming commonplace. Fowler helps hold the line.

Classic book on English usage, some of it a bit outdated but it is still a major authority on the subject
