New Oxford Style Manual Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The New Oxford Style Manual brings together two essential reference works in a single volume: New Hart's Rules and the New Oxford Dictionary for Writers and Editors.

New Hart's Rules, Oxford's definitive guide to style, consists of 20 chapters that provide authoritative and expert advice on how to prepare copy for publication. Topics covered include how to use italic, roman, and other type treatments, numbers and dates, law and legal references, illustrations, notes and references, and bibliographies. The guidelines are complemented by the New Oxford Dictionary for Writers and Editors, which features 25,000 alphabetically arranged entries giving authoritative advice on those words and names which raise questions time and time again because of spelling, capitalization, hyphenation, or cultural and historical context. Entries give full coverage of recommended spellings, variant forms, confusable words, hyphenation, capitalization, foreign and specialist terms, proper names, and abbreviations.

The dictionary also includes superb appendices for quick reference including proofreading marks, countries and currencies, and alphabets. Combining these two works and drawing on the unrivalled research and expertise of the Oxford Dictionaries department, New Oxford Style Manual is an essential part of every editor's and writer's toolkit.
