About This Item

Random House, 2009. 1st edition. Hardback. New/new. "In Origins of the Specious, work mavens (authors) explode the misconceptions that have led generatiions of language lovers astray. They reveal why some of grammar's best-known 'rules' arent - and never were - rules at all. They explain how Brits and Yanks wound up speaking the same language so differently, and why British English isn't necessarily purer. This playfully witty yet rigourously researched book sets the record straight..." This book is new and unread. FIrst edtiion. Complete number line. Not price clipped. Great gift volume.
