    Bad English [E–pub/Kindle] This was a good read Shea is a very humorous writer What I enjoyed was that this book underscored the fluidity of the English language and how many of the rules of writing are a relatively modern concept Are there rules? Yes But the idea is that rigidity that some may wish simply cannot win over popular usage like starting sentences with but The setup was fun Each chapter would begin with a uoted rule followed by another uote t

Summary Bad English

Bad English Free download Æ 105 He book chronicles the long and entertaining history of language mistakes and features some of our most common words and phrases This is a book that will settle arguments among word lovers and it’s sure to start a few too. A great book It is literally not figuratively a history of grammarians is that apostrophe in the correct place gripes about the semantics and grammar of the English language most of which I didn t know were ever a problem It is funny and it appealed to my nerdy linguist side If you too have a nerdy linguist side or if you are a grammar nazi who needs a dose of reality I highly recommend this book

Bad English Free download Æ 105 The author of Reading the OED presents a look at language “mistakes” and how they came to be accepted as correct or not English is a glorious mess of a language cobbled together from a wide variety of sources and syntax. Mr Shea takes an in depth look at the evolution of our English language Traveling along an easily understood timeline he looks at words and phrases that began as mistakes and misspeaks yet have now become commonplace and acceptable in both the written and spoken word And yes there is a difference in what is acceptable in written and in spoken English Just to enlighten you a little stupider is not a word and OMG is not a 21st century acronym Language is alive and as such it evolves with the timesMr Shea does not only look at the words themselves but also at punctuation and grammar Did you know there are seven SEVEN acceptable uses for an apostrophe There are a multitude of words that began life as nouns and now are acceptable to use as verbs and adjectives And yes sometimes it is acceptable to split an infinitive Currently thumbing my nose at my grade 10 English teacherEvery good teacher follows a lesson with a uiz right Well Mr Shea does not deviate and offers a uiz made up of 14 uotations asking his readers to choose which are by Shakespeare and which come from the disparate world of hi hoprap As you are muttering the phrase piece of cake under your breath let me tell you not uite as simple as it soundsThis book is well researched and Mr Shea uotes his sources endlesslyIrregardless which I now KNOW is NOT a real word and probably included as a preventative which I now also KNOW is NOT a real word measure to keep his readers from inadvertently making an error the only fault I could find with this book comes at the end when Mr Shea sites defines and gives the appropriate reference for 221 accepted and commonly used words which were once frowned upon some examples being vest upcoming rotten ice cream balding donate fine and awful etc ekscetera which I NOW KNOW is acceptable for use in writing but never in speaking Although this section was an interesting addition to the book it did seem to go on and on and on and onSo how did I a reader of primarily fiction end up with this book on my reading list As difficult as it may be to believe I recently found myself in a discussion about verbosity vocabulary vernacular comma splices and run on sentences A few days later I was checking my library site for their newest audio book additions and this one popped up Coincidence I think not I had to give it a listen It was entertaining and as much as I hate to admit it I did learn a thing or two If you are a constant reader a writer a speaker a teacher or just someone enthralled with this English language we profess to know and understand this would be a handy reference book to keep on that little shelf close to your desk maybe between your dictionary and your thesaurus
