Format: Paperback
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

When I saw this oft-quoted saying by Edmund Burke employed as an epigraph to this book, I thought I made a horrible mistake. In a typical grammar Nazi fashion, the author embarks on a crusade to protect the the language of Cervantes from numerous crimes committed by not only young internauts but also “afiladas plumas”, no matter how erudite they are. These are Anglicisms, those are Frenchisms. Here she writes you can’t say that because RAE (Real Academia Española) doesn’t permit it; there she criticises the very RAE for being too lenient to let the offending word slip into the dictionary. And so on and so forth.

Why then, you might ask, did I bother to read the whole thing, let alone to write a post about it? Because, if you can ignore for a while that crusader attitude, this book is simply brilliant. Because when one is passionate about language and writes well, this passion is infectious. Because it is funny. Because the author admits that sometimes a vulgarism could be more elegant and evocative than an accepted form (as is the case with vagamundo vs “correct” vagabundo). Because she goes to great lengths to rescue some beautiful words from oblivion. Last but not least, or maybe indeed first, because of its untranslatable title.

So... where exactly is “el quinto pino”? Why anyone would want to find “gato encerrado”? Is it appropriate at all to “hacer el amor” in public? Read the book.

By Roberto Avila - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Una interesante recopilación de errores comunes, contados de forma entretenida, pero con la profundidad gramatical necesaria. Pese a que son muchas las referencias al Español hablado en la Península, es muy útil para corregir y enriquecer el idioma de cualquier hablante; además permite apreciar que la RAE no siempre da esplendor al idioma.
