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.
