That Or Which, and Why : a Usage Guide for Thoughtful Writers and Editors (07 Edition) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

That or Which, and Why is an insightful and witty guide to writing. Based on Evan Jenkins's long-running column 'Language Corner' in Columbia Journalism Review, the book is compiled of brief, alphabetically arranged entries on approximately 200 major writing stumbling blocks, from the wonderful world of 'that' and 'which' to trickier terrain like the correct usage of common idiomatic expressions. Working from his experiences as a newsroom editor and teacher, Jenkins humorous tone puts the reader at ease, unlike many of the writing and usage guides out there that are off-putting in their rigidity and dogmatism. He takes the 'we're-all-in-this-together' approach to teaching better writing - maintaining a light tone throughout the book and emphasizing flexibility and easy-to-use guidelines rather than delivering orders from Grammar-on-high.

Book News Annotation:

Anyone who writes or edits will benefit from this personable guide, which lists problem words and expressions alphabetically accompanied by a frank discussion of their correct use. A sampling of entries--and the book's flavor--includes "as vs. so", "impact, the verb", and "that, omission of". Most entries include examples submitted by Jenkins's readers (he compiled this tome from his column "Language corner" in the Columbia Journalism Review.) Not indexed.
