Описание: An entertaining guide to the most common errors in English In this engaging, opinionated take on the parlous state of the English language, Thomas Parrish's fictional friend "The Grouchy Grammarian" examines forty-seven of the most common mistakes in English from apostrophe atrocities to the lie/lay conundrum. Using exampleserrors found in major newspapers, magazines, and TV broadcasts, the Grammarian explains basic elements of grammar and good writing that many of our foremost journalists (and the rest of us) occasionally forget. With red pencil in hand, he's compiled a surprising list of gaffes, careless errors, and grammatical mistakes to prove his point. Above all, he cautions readers to think about what words mean and to think about what they are trying to say. Persnickety, hilarious, and always right, The Grouchy Grammarian is a lighthearted guide for anyone looking to avoid the pitfalls of ungrammatical writing.
