Misadventures of the English Language

Price: $14.95

With plenty of informative examples, learn which rules of English are worth remembering—and which are simply hot air This book looks at some of the controversial aspects of English usage—grammar, vocabulary, and punctuation—and tries to assess what matters and what doesn't. Looking at why it pays to be precise in punctuation—the hackneyed examples of "Let's eat Grandma" and "Eats, Shoots and Leaves" show how a comma can make all the difference—why tautologies are simply annoying; and how corporate speak can actually mean nothing at all; this book covers the aspects of the English language that could leave you with cause for concern.
