About the book:

This is a survey of today's climate of literacy that homes in on the actual faults in current usage, cataloguing common errors and infelicities. The book contains examples of these from papers, journals and magazines. It also gives advice on how to attain linguistic accuracy. The book raises the question of whether an educational system can be expected to lift standards of literacy when the young are pitchforked into an adult world in which professional writers are careless of good usage.
