Usage And Abusage: A Guide to Good English(Abusus Non Tollit Usum): A Modern Guide to Good English

by Eric Partridge (Author), Janet Whitcut (Primary Contributor)

Synopsis

Language is everybody's business, and enters into almost every part of human life. Yet it is all too often misused: directness and clarity disappear in a whirl of cliches, euphemisms and woolliness of expression. This book attacks abusage of all kinds, and at the same time offers advice on the proper use of English.
