Lost for Words

The Mangling and Manipulating of the English Language

Book - 2004
Rate this:
From empty cliche to meaningless jargon, dangling participle to sentences without verbs, the English language is reeling. It is under attack from all sides. Politicians dupe us with deliberately evasive language. Bosses worry about impacting the bottom line. Here, Humphrys exposes the depths to which our beautiful language has sunk.
