Between You and I: A Little Book of Bad English

Between You and I: A Little Book of Bad English

by JohnHumphrys (Author), JamesCochrane (Author)

Synopsis

John Humphrys, Britain's best-loved radio journalist, introduces a new edition of this waspish review of the massacre of the Queen's English. This handy guide is a valiant attempt to salvage some pearts of good usage from the linguistic dystopia of modern Britain. For the most part, the examples of bad English come from people in the public eye who consider themselves educated and who ought to know better. Between You and I should be the constant bedside companion of any person of sensibility who, against all odds, wants to save our language.
