The King's English - A Guide to Modern Usage, Kingsley Amis
11 Kingsley Amis The King's English - A Guide to Modern Usage
HarperCollins 232078 Great Britain 1997 First Edition 0002556812 / 9780002556811 Hardcover Good Condition Good A Parthian shot from one of the most important figures in post-war British fiction, The King's English is the late Kingsley Amis's last word on the state of the language. More frolicsome than Fowler's Modern Usage, lighter than the Oxford English Dictionary, and brimming with the strong opinions and razor-sharp wit that made Amis so popular--and so controversial--The King's English is a must for fans and language purists. 271 pages. Spine slightly slanted. Foxing to endpapers and page edges. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Language; Language & Linguistics; ISBN: 0002556812. ISBN/EAN: 9780002556811.

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.
