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.
