    Print book: English: 1st U.S. edition, revised by Sidney Greenbaum & Janet Whitcut ; introduction by Joseph EpsteinView all editions and formats Summary: Covers the issues in the choice and handling of words - will energise anyone with a writing job to do. This book is in the main a reconstruction of my two previous books, Plain Words and ABC of Plain Words. Both these, as I explained in the prefaces to them, were written at the invitation of the Treasury as a contribution to what they were doing to improve official English. The first was by way of an introduction to the subject; the second was designed as a work of reference.
