Useful books

  • The Big Book of Beastly Mispronunciations, by Charles Harrington Elster, Houghton Mifflin, 1998. This book is just what its subtitle suggests—"The Complete Opinionated Guide for the Careful Speaker." An excellent resource for speakers who want to "say it right."

  • The Handbook of Good English, by Edward D. Johnson, Facts On File, 1991. This is one of the best grammar handbooks ever. Its explanations are clear and its arrangement makes it easy to use.

  • The Write Way: The SPELL Guide to Real-Life Writing, by Richard Lederer and Richard Dowis, Pocket Books, 1995. This is a good, all-around guide to better writing. It was published under the auspices of The Society for the Preservation of English Language and Literature (SPELL), P.O. Box 118, Waleska, GA 30183. Available in bookstores.

  • A Dictionary of Modern American Usage, by Bryan A. Garner, Oxford University Press, 1998. Possibly the most comprehensive usage manual available. A must for the speech writer who wants to "write it right" all the time.
