Review

'A classic' -- Sunday Telegraph

'A handy linguistic reference book and provocative commentary on the present state of English writing'
-- Daily Mail

Synopsis

Usage and Abusage takes a long, hard look at the use and constant misuse of English. Declaring war on bad grammar, woolliness of expression and poor choice of vocabulary, this essential guide sets out both to highlight problems and pitfalls and to offer constructive advice on the proper use of English.
