Recenzii

Jeremy Butterfield has given us easily the best edition of this beloved work since H. W. Fowler's original. For anyone who cares about the English language, this book will provide helpful guidance and fascinating distraction in equal measure.
The book is impressively up to date, with entries on internet-related neologisms: hash-tag is here and selfie, and the verb to google (which Butterfield does not object to, insisting only that is should be capitalized) ... easily the best edition of this beloved work since H.W Fowler's original. For anyone who cares about the English language, this book will provide helpful guidance and fascinating distraction in equal measure.
Butterfield's passion for discussing language is evident throughout ... This edition is rich in examples of language in use and discussion of debates about appropriate usage.
here is another fascinating tome that will be in constant use by yours truly
Butterfield has created a guide that is readable for entertainment as well as enlightenment.
I must congratulate Jeremy Butterfield, editor of the latest edition of Fowler's Dictionary of Modern English Usage. To wordsmiths such as myself, Fowler's is akin to the Koran or the Bible.
