This volume explores illiteracy by citing examples from realms as disparate as advertising, sportscasting, popular music, publishing, and "higher education", as well as from such colloquial modes of usage such as idioms, euphemisms and redundancies. The author aims to show that when people talk about "the failure to communicate", they are talking not about a disinclination to communicate or about a hesitancy to reveal thoughts and feelings but about the actual, concrete inability to phrase what one wishes to communicate. This is the second of two titles.
