English Usage Guides

History, Advice, Attitudes

Edited by Ingrid Tieken-Boon van Ostade

  • This volume explores both historical and current issues in English usage guides or style manuals.
  • Chapters look at how and why these guides are compiled, and by whom; what sort of advice they contain; how they differ from grammars and dictionaries; and how attitudes to usage have changed.
