Garner's Fresh English Usage by Garner Bryan
Product Description
With more than a thousand new entries and more than 2,300 word-frequency ratios, the magisterial fourth edition of this book-now renamed Garner's Modern English Usage (GMEU)-reflects usage lexicography at its finest. Garner explains the nuances of grammar and vocabulary with thoroughness, finesse, and wit. He discourages whatever is slovenly, pretentious, or pedantic.

GMEU is the liveliest and most compulsively readable reference work for writers of our time. It delights while providing instruction on skillful, persuasive, and vivid writing. Garner liberates English from two extremes: both from the hidebound "purists" who mistakenly believe that split infinitives and sentence-ending prepositions are malfeasances and from the linguistic relativists who believe that whatever people say or write must necessarily be accepted.

The judgments here are backed up not just by a lifetime of study but also by an empirical grounding in the largest linguistic corpus ever available. In this fourth edition, Garner has made extensive use of corpus linguistics to include ratios of standard terms as compared against variants in modern print sources. No other resource provides as comprehensive, reliable, and empirical a guide to current English usage.

For all concerned with writing and editing, GMEU will prove invaluable as a desk reference. Garner illustrates with actual examples, cited with chapter and verse, all the linguistic blunders that modern writers and speakers are prone to, whether in word choice, syntax, phrasing, punctuation, or pronunciation. No matter how knowledgeable you may already be, you're sure to learn from every single page of this book.

Garner's New-fashioned American Usage by Garner, Bryan A.
Product Description
Since first appearing in 1998, Garner's Modern American Usage has established itself as the preeminent guide to the effective use of the English language. Brimming with witty, erudite essays on troublesome words and phrases, this book authoritatively shows how to avoid the countless pitfalls that await unwary writers and speakers whether the issues relate to grammar, punctuation, word choice, or pronunciation.

Now in the third edition, readers will find the "Garner's Language-Change Index," which registers where each disputed usage in modern English falls on a five-stage continuum from nonacceptability (to the language community as a whole) to acceptability, giving the book a consistent standard throughout. Garner's Modern American Usage, 3e is the first usage guide ever to incorporate such a language-change index, and the judgments are based both on Garner's own original research in linguistic corpora and on his analysis of hundreds of earlier studies. Another first in this edition is the panel of critical readers: 120-plus commentators who have helped Garner reassess and update the text, so that every page has been improved.

Partial Cross-Section of a City

As I started walking with my friend, on the vibrant roads of Khirki Extension, I was amazed by the life on streets. We took a turn to a very quiet cluster of buildings. The climb, off to the 4th floor of the building was tiring due to the awkward staircase…completely dark, so I had to pull out my phone…and no ventilation. Few looks of suspicion from few open doors, for we were not black, evident of the tension due to the midnight incidence of 2014. We reached a closed door and knocked. Charline opened the door to the African Kitchen. Many became refugees, so Charline arrived in Delhi. The Delhi of 2010, the city of malls…the city where courts demolished settlements for indescribable nuisance causing activities but upheld the illegal land encroachments of shopping malls as modern…. Carline landed in Khirki Extension, the closest residential area to the highly sought after Saket Mall cluster. With a baby girl and a house, she decided to run an African Kitchen as is commonly known, to supplement her income. One of the few remaining kitchens after the mid-night raid. Charline’s kitchen, as many other African Kitchens, was the social networking space for the people from Africa, both from the continent at large and from Ivory Coast as well. An eatery working out of a rented house, which serves whatever Charline desires and of what ingredients she has on that day. Charline smiles, as she claims that she is a mother and sister to all the African community as she cooks for them. Reminds me quite of the political notion of women in India, where they need to take designated places of the ‘family unit’ to garner respect and legitimacy. The building was constructed for rental, no light, and very poor ventilation, to be able build as much as possible. As Charline claims. ’we pay more rent than the locals, and we don’t complain about the building’… a case for access to housing, even with the terrible racial bias in the neighbourhood. Six years before Charline arrived, somewhere in the streets of Delhi, a car’s rear-view-mirror was being stolen. The owner was new to the city (probably that is why thought a rear-view-mirror is even required to drive in Delhi. She came out running to see a young boy trying to steal the rear-view-mirror…she shouted…the boy was stunned…neighbours gathered…the boy was held. Source: …deep within…
