Write It Right: A Little Blacklist of Literary Faults - gebrauchtes Buch

ISBN: 9780486473109

ID: 1605854

One of A merica's foremost language experts presents an annotated edition of A mbrose Bierce's classic catalog of correct speech. In 1893, Ambrose Bierce declared "I am for preserving the ancient, primitive distinction between right and wrong." In "Write it Right," originally published in 1909, Bierce turned this considerable zeal on the English language. The result revealed that the satirical author of "The Devil's Dictionary "had a keen ear for the vernacular--and that he "hated "it. This slim volume of his three hundred or so reviled words and expressions contains many we use today with no hesitation at all. (Of "electrocution" he says, "To one having even an elementary knowledge of Latin grammar this word is no less than disgusting, and the thing meant by it is felt to be altogether too good for the word's inventor.") Jan Freeman, acclaimed author of the weekly column "The Word" for the "Boston Globe," annotates Bierce's rulings with style, humor, and in-depth research, revealing what Bierce got right--and what he didn't--and giving insight into how the language has changed over the past century. "Write it Right," with its incisive wit and insight into the history of American English, is the perfect gift for word curmudgeons everywhere.

Write It Right: A Little Blacklist of Literary Faults - gebrauchtes Buch

ISBN: 0486473104

ID: 6773152

Amusing and thought-provoking, this A-to-Z compendium outlines common oral and written gaffes. Ambrose Bierce, a celebrated literary wit, assembled his informative compilation in 1909 from many years of observations and notes. He advocates precision in language, offering?alternatives to grammatical lapses and inaccurate word choices. Moneyed for Wealthy: "The moneyed men of New York." One might as sensibly say, "The cattled men of Texas," or, "The lobstered men of the fish market."?Name for Title and Name: "His name was Mr. Smith." Surely no babe was ever christened Mister.?Juncture means a joining, a junction; its use to signify a time, however critical, is absurd. "At this juncture the woman screamed." In reading that account of it, we scream, too.?Times and usages have changed considerably in the past century.?Bierce's strict rules?remain, however, a timeless source of interest for wordsmiths and lovers of language. arts and literature,authors,biographies,creative writing and composition,education and reference,etymology,history,humanities,language arts,linguistics Writing Skills, Dover Publications
