Bad Language, Lars-Gunnar Andersson and Peter Trudgill

Penguin Books 230820 Great Britain 1992 0140125086 / 9780140125085 Softcover Good Condition The title of this book is intended ironically. The main thrust of this book is to argue that one should think twice before condemning particular forms of language or linguistic usages. Written by linguists, it takes the linguist's objective view but is written in non-technical language so that it can be accessible and entertaining to a large audience. Topics covered include swearing, slang, dialects, accents and jargon. 202 pages. Light foxing to endpapers and page edges. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams. Category: Language; Language & Linguistics; ISBN: 0140125086. ISBN/EAN: 9780140125085. Inventory No: 230820. Paperback

Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation, Lynne Truss
11 Lynne Truss Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation
Profile Books 246028 Australia 2005 1861976771 / 9781861976772 Softcover Very Good Condition A witty, entertaining, impassioned guide to perfect punctuation, for everyone who cares about precise writing. Not a primer but a 'zero tolerance' manual for direct action. A panda walked into a cafe. He ordered a sandwich, ate it, then pulled out a gun and shot the waiter. 'Why?' groaned the injured man. The panda shrugged, tossed him a badly punctuated wildlife manual and walked out. And sure enough, when the waiter consulted the book, he found an explanation. 'Panda,' ran the entry for his assailant. 'Large black and white mammal native to China. Eats, shoots and leaves.' We see signs in shops every day for "Banana's" and even "Gateaux's". Competition rules remind us: "The judges decision is final." Now, many punctuation guides already exist explaining the principles of the apostrophe; the comma; the semi-colon. These books do their job but somehow punctuation abuse does not diminish. Why? Because people who can't punctuate don't read those books! Of course they don't! They laugh at books like those! Eats, Shoots and Leaves adopts a more militant approach and attempts to recruit an army of punctuation vigilantes: send letters back with the punctuation corrected. Do not accept sloppy emails. Climb ladders at dead of night with a pot of paint to remove the redundant apostrophe in "Video's sold here" 209 pages. Inscription to previous owner on inside cover. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Language; Language & Linguistics; ISBN: 1861976771. ISBN/EAN: 9781861976772. Inventory No: 246028. Paperback
