The Facts on File Dictionary of Troublesome Words

Some brief overview of book

Why should I avoid discussing the 'weather conditions'? Can a woman be 'celibate'? When can I use 'due to', or should I play safe and always use 'because of'?

What's wrong with the way I'm using 'crescendo'? This book provides a simple guide to the more perplexing and contentious issues of standard written English. The entries are discussed with wit and common sense, and are illustrated with examples of questionable usage taken from leading British and American newspapers.

No familiarity with English grammar is needed to learn from this book, although a glossary of grammatical terms is included and there us also an appendix on punctuation. Journalists, copy-writers and secretaries will find this an invaluable handbook, and it will also be a highly enjoyable book for the word-buff.
