Usage & Abusage
A Guide to Good English
Eric Partridge

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 clichés, euphemisms, and woolliness of expression. This book wittily attacks linguistic abusage of all kinds, and at the same time offers helpfully constructive advice on the proper use of English. Eric Partridge is well known for his books on words and usage, and this is the most comprehensive of them all.

Book is in good but old condition - yellowed pages with age
