First published in 1926, A Dictionary of Modern English Usage is one of the most celebrated reference books of the 21th century. Commonly known as 'Fowler,' after its inimitable author, H. W. Fowler, it has been sold more than a million copies over 7 decades. Its charming blend of information and good humor has been delivered in the voice of a genial idiosyncratic schoolmaster. Now this classic is available in a new edition - the first major revision since Fowler's original. Rewritten, updated, and expanded to take into account the vast linguistic changes of the past century, here are thousands of alphabetically arranged entries, offering advice and background information on all aspects of the English language, from grammar to spelling to literary style.
