Usage and Abusage

The first edition of this book was published in and became a classic reference on the use of the English language. Whitcut has updated this edition for the s but left much of Partridge's Eric Partridge. Usage and Abusage is a classic that has stood up well to the passage of time. But language does evolve over the years, and new problems such as the use of "hopefully" and current topics such as "sexism" have engendered a whole new vocabulary, which cannot be omitted from any book discussing the English of the s. In this new edition, Janet Whitcut has revised Partridge's popular reference book to reflect the language of well-informed writers, readers, and speakers today. In addition, she has added a section to the book entitled Vogue Words, which includes words such as "crash" "symbiotic, " and "viable" that have acquired a power and an influence beyond those that they originally possessed.
