Transcript
  The Cambridge Guide to English Usage The Cambridge Guide to English Usage  is an A–Z reference book, giving anup-to-date account of the debatable issues of English usage and written style. Itsadvice draws a wealth of recent research and data from very large corpora of American and British English – illuminating their many divergences and alsopoints of convergence on which international English can be based. The bookcomprises more than 4000 points of word meaning, spelling, grammar,punctuation and larger issues of inclusive language, and effective writing andargument. It also provides guidance on grammatical terminology, and coverstopics in electronic communication and the internet. The discussion notes themajor dictionaries, grammars and usage books in the US, UK, Canada andAustralia, allowing readers to calibrate their own practices as required.  CGEU  is descriptive rather than prescriptive, but offers a principled basis forimplementing progressive or more conservative decisions on usage.  Consultants JOHN ALGEO  UniversityofGeorgia JOHN AYTO  UniversityofSurrey DAVID CRYSTAL  UniversityofWales,Bangor SIDNEY LANDAU  FellowoftheDictionarySocietyofNorthAmerica KATIE WALES  UniversityofLeeds  The Cambridge Guide to EnglishUsage PAM PETERS  Macquarie University     Cambridge, New York, Melbourne, Madrid, Cape Town, Singapore, São PauloCambridge University PressThe Edinburgh Building, Cambridge   , UK First published in print format - ----- ---- © Cambridge University Press 20042004Information on this title: www.cambridge.org/9780521621816This publication is in copyright.
