About the book:

Over 75 years old, this classic text has become the standard work on the correct but natural use of English and has ensured that Fowler is a household name. Written in Fowler's inimitable style, it gives clear guidance on usage, word formation, inflexion, spelling, pronunciation, punctuation, and typography. Rewritten, updated, and expanded to take into account the vast linguistic changes of the past three-quarters of a century, here are thousands of alphabetically-arranged entries, offering advice and background information on all aspects of the English language, from grammar to spelling to literary style.
Witty and practical, and renowned for its authority, Fowler's Modern English Usage remains an invaluable guide to the English language. The first place to turn for sensible advice on the thorny issues of grammar, meaning, and pronunciation, "Fowler" is one of those rare reference books that can also be read simply for pleasure.
This new edition includes an introduction by Simon Winchester, which gives the book a modern perspective and confirms its importance in literature.
