Usage And Abusage : A Guide to Good English(Abusus Non Tollit Usum)
Language is everybody's business, and enters into almost every part of human life. Yet it is all too often misused: directness and clarity disappear in a whirl of cliches, euphemisms and woolliness of expression. This book attacks abusage of all kinds, and at the same time offers advice on the proper use of English.
