Description

In 1919, William Strunk Jr privately printed a little book which, when revised E.B. White 38 years later, was to become "The Elements of Style", a classic text on grammar and usage. English in the 1990s is a very much different language from that of the 1940s. Now widely regarded as universal language of business and commerce, English (and its elegant usage) is constantly gaining in importance in the world today. This is a comprehensive and easy-to-use guide to the finer complexities of English usage. The book is for everyone who already has a command of the conventions of basic English, but who wants to acquire finer precision in expression and clarity in writing.show more
