English Our English: And How to Sing It - Keith Waterhouse

Viking, 1991, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. Pages gently age-tanned.

Shows how to harness that ingrained knowledge so as to develop a facility for writing in clear, expressive English. He contends that anyone with an ear for the language - half an ear, even - can quickly become the master of it. Good English, even at its most utilitarian, should sing. Bad writing sounds flat, like a soprano off-key. Keith Waterhouse demonstrates how to tune a flat sentence and how, by listening to what one is writing, to spot grammatical errors even when one knows hardly any grammar.
