Description
Information
For anyone who has ever found written English a potential minefield, 'Mind the Gaffe' will help you avoid the blunders and howlers which could leave your readers either bemused or rolling on the floor with laughter.

In this straight-talking and highly entertaining book, Larry Trask gives forthright advice on how to write simply and effectively, highlighting pretentious words that should be avoided at all costs (synergy, interface, feedback . . .); suggesting guidelines for the use of e-mail; and adjudicating on hundreds of contentious issues, from split infinitives to whether you should write napkin or serviette.
