About the book:

The revised edition of The Canadian Style continues to set the standard for English language usage in Canada. This reasonably priced handbook is cross-referenced, and indexed chapters make it easy to find the information you need. It provides concise, up-to-date answers to a host of questions on abbreviations, hyphenation, word division, spelling, the use of capital letters, italics, punctuation, quotations, prepositional usage, and frequently misused or confused words.

It deals with metric units, dates and other numerical expressions, and also covers letter, memo and report formats, notes, indexes and bibliographies, and geographical names. New chapters give techniques for writing clearly and concisely, editing documents, and avoiding stereotyping in communications. There is even an appendix on how to present French words in an English text.

The Canadian Style is an indispensable language guide for editors, copywriters, students, teachers, lawyers, journalists, secretaries and business people - in fact, anyone writing in the English language in Canada today.
