A Guide to English in the 21st Century Hardback

Illustrated by Gray Joliffe


This guide takes a cool objective look at the standard dos and don'ts of grammar and vocabulary, relating them to the English used by some of the best writers, speakers and broadcasters today.

Difficulties over grammar and pronunciation are explained simply and clearly, and there is open advice about four-letter words, racist words and other aspects of English that are usually glossed over.

Written in dictionary form, it contains a collection of examples, quotations, and cartoons.
