Product Details

Praise

“Curious and brilliant.” —The Spectator
 
“[Gwynne] brings a bewitching zeal—and a defiantly old-fashioned approach—to the study of English grammar and usage. . . . Gwynne’s Grammar has its undeniable pleasures.” —The Boston Globe

“Unflinchingly, unapologetically rear-guard . . . with not the least wisp of dumbing-down. . . . His definitions—terse, logical, precise—are among the best things in the book.” —The Wall Street Journal

“A sprightly handbook . . . The examples are lively, the advice direct and confident. Some of it, once heard, won’t be forgotten. . . . Gwynne’s certainty is infectious.” —First Things

“Warm and utterly self-assured . . . Refreshingly opinionated . . . [Gwynne] is an unashamed prescriptivist . . . [and his] judgment is unambiguous . . . It doesn’t matter how many academic linguists tell us that language changes over time . . . Educated people still want to know whether they should write ‘amuck’ or ‘amok,’ ‘between’ or ‘among’.” —The Weekly Standard

“Dynamite to modern, child-centered education: a guide to the forgotten rudiments of the English Language.” —Daily Telegraph (UK)
 
“Witty, engaging and highly educational stuff.” —Times Educational Supplement (London)
