International English Usage Ian Hancock, Lorento Todd

International English Usage is designed for all users of English, whether students,teachers, editors, writers, librarians or even our fellow linguists who, while adept attacking English to pieces, are not always so skilled at putting it together. It is designed to bridge the gaps between colloquial and written English, to illustrate regional richness and to clarify how and why words and phrases are used. It provides information on innumerable topics hitherto not discussed in a reference book of this kind. And, most important of all, perhaps, it challenges pedantry, causing the user to become aware of the English language as it is, rather than as others tell us it should be.
