Garner's Modern American Usage

Third Edition

Bryan Garner

  • Author is an acclaimed writer, grammarian, lexicographer, teacher, and lawyer.
  • The first language usage guide to include the "Garner's Language-Change Index," which registers where each disputed usage in modern English falls on a five-stage continuum from nonacceptability.
  • Also the first language usage guide to feature a panel of critical readers: 120-plus commentators who have helped Garner reassess and update the text, so that every page has been improved.
