- Word Court:
Wherein verbal virtue is rewarded,
crimes against the language are punished,
and poetic justice is done.
by Barbara Wallraff
Harcourt, Inc., NY
Oyez, oyez, oyez! There will be no giggling at the judge's
asides (until you read them, that is). Painless grammar is
the order of the court, and you are remanded to your keyboard
following a session with this book.
- The Elements of Expression: Putting Thoughts into Words
by Arthur Plotnik
- Henry Holt and Company, NY
- Your opportunity to laugh out loud while learning how to express
yourself. This is a delightful manual of practical magic for anyone
who writes anything.
- Torn Wings and Faux Pas:
A Flashbook of Style, A Beastly Guide Through the Writer's Labyrinth
by Karen Elizabeth Gordon
Pantheon Books, NY
A weird and wonderful grammar book like none you ever had in the
fifth grade. Almost everything about the English language
you need to know and were afraid to ask.
- The Writer's Art and Fine Print
by James J. Kilpatrick
Andrews and McMeel, Kansas City MO
Two delightful guides to the art of writing.
Enchanting and erudite musings on the untidy perplexities of English,
the "teenager's bedroom" of languages.
(These are out of print, so look for them in the library or at a used book store.)
