The Cambridge Guide to English Usage

Серия: "The Cambridge Guide"

The Cambridge Guide to English Usage is an A-Z reference book, giving an up-to-date account of the debatable issues of English usage and written style. Its advice draws on a wealth of recent research and data from very large corpora of American and British English - illuminating their many divergences and also points of convergence on which international English can be based. The book comprises more than 4000 points of word meaning, spelling, grammar and punctuation, and larger issues of inclusive language, and effective writing and argument. It also provides guidance on grammatical terminology, and covers topics in electronic communication and the internet. The discussion notes the major dictionaries, grammars and usage books in the USA, UK, Canada and Australia, allowing readers to calibrate their own practices as required. CGEU is descriptive rather than prescriptive, but offers a principled basis for implementing progressive or more conservative decisions on usage.• The book is based on extensive, up-to-date corpus data rather than on the author’s personal intuition or prejudice • It is truly international in scope, differentiating clearly between US, UK, Canadian and Australian usages and referring to other regional varieties as required • It is clearly and accessibly written, for easy use by anybody concerned with accurate communication in English, whether as a student, a writer, or in other business and professional spheres
