Now revised and expanded, this witty bestseller retains the same fresh, irreverent humor but now includes new chapters on spelling and pronunciation, as well as other updates throughout. Filled with sensible solutions to the grammar mysteries that bug even the best grammarians, O'Conner explains problems in simple, easy-to-understand prose and short example sentences that will have you on your way to a better, clearer, writing style. As the title hints, "Woe is I" conveys the point that English is nothing if not reasonable, keeping alive the irregularities that make language "full of wonders, and surprises, poetry, and unexpected charm." 265 pages, hardcover with dust jacket.
