The author of the best-selling Strictly English wages war on bad English
In his best-selling Strictly English Simon Heffer explained how to write well. In Simply English he offers an entertaining and supremely useful A-Z guide to frequent errors, common misunderstandings, and stylistic howlers. What is the difference between amend and emend, between imply and infer, and between uninterested and disinterested? When should one put owing to rather than due to? Why should the temptation to write actually, basically or at this moment in time always be strenuously resisted? How do you use an apostrophe correctly, ensure that you understand what alibi really means, and avoid the perils of the double negative? The follow-up to the Sunday Times best-seller Strictly English by author and journalist Simon Heffer. Previous Titles: Strictly English, High Minds.
