About this book
Subtitled, "A History Of Proper English". Examines the present state of conflict over English usage, and looks at the long history of acrimonious language arguments, which date back to Shakespeare's time. Where did grammar rules spring from? And what's changed in the electronic era?
What really is correctness? Why do people care so much about it? What is at stake in the quarrel about good and bad usage?
