A brilliantly funny lament on the misuse of English grammar and a guide on how to avoid the troublingly common language pitfalls, from the self-proclaimed punctuation perfectionist, Gyles Brandreth. It can be much harder than it seems; commas, colons, hanging clauses and even apostrophes can drive us all mad at times, but it riles no one more than the longest-serving resident of Countdown’s Dictionary Corner, grammar guru, Gyles Brandreth. In this brilliantly funny tirade on grammar, Gyles anatomises the linguistic horrors of our times, tells us where we’ve beengoing wrong (and why) and shows us how, in future, we can get it right everytime. Is 'alright’ all right? You’ll find out right here. From dangling clausesto gerunds, you’ll also discover why Santa’s helpers are subordinate clauses. In Have You Eaten Grandma? he waxes lyrical about the importance of language as, after all, it is what we use to define ourselves and is ultimately what makes us human.
