Summary

Since its first publication in 1926, this guide to English usage has come to be known affectionately simply as "Fowler". Journalists, broadcasters, and writers of all kinds should find it of use for making the definitive judgement on all matters of English usage. Taking account of the extensive changes in standard English, "Fowler" has been written afresh and expanded by Robert Burchfield, an Oxford lexicographer. This revised edition of the standard language reference provides: comprehensive advice on correct English; practical help with grammar, syntax, style, and choice of words; clear guidance on usage points; all major points of usage reconsidered and judged in the light of the language of the 1990s, with many new insights into how English is used today. In-depth coverage is given of both British and American English, together with aspects of the English of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and South Africa.
