Had Dickens owned a copy of The King's English he would not have written `your great ability and trustfulness'; he would have recognized the malapropism and realized that the context demanded `trustworthiness'. In this classic reference book the Fowler brothers illustrate by example all the blunders of English usage that are commonly made, and guide the reader to improved expression and style. * The essential guide to written English * Examples taken from famous authors and newspapers * The ideal companion to Fowler's Modern English Usage `deserves a garland ...the most concise and exhaustive study of the English language.' Spectator `such a pleasure to read and so straightforward in its explanations that one concedes all one's errors and aberrations with good grace.' Keith Waterhouse, Good Book Guide This book is intended for writers; students and teachers of English grammar and syntax; anyone wanting practical guidance on written English.
