This invaluable reference work offers the best advice on English usage, drawing on the unrivalled resources of Oxford's English Dictionaries programme and language monitoring. This second edition of the 'Pocket Fowler' harks back to the original 1926 edition of A Dictionary of Modern English Usage by Henry Fowler, born 150 years ago in 1858. Updated with the use of the Oxford English Corpus, a database of over two billion words of 21st century English, the new edition answers your most frequently asked questions about language use. Should you use a split infinitive or a preposition at the end of a sentence? Is it infer or imply? Who or whom? What are the main differences between British and American English? Over 4,000 entries offer clear recommendations on issues of grammar, pronunciation, spelling, confusable words, and written style. Real examples are drawn from classic and contemporary literary sources, newspapers and magazines, and the Internet. Pocket Fowler's Modern English Usage is an indispensable companion for anyone who wants to use the English language effectively.
