How to Speak and Write Correctly by Joseph Devlin

How to Speak and Write Correctly

by Joseph Devlin

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
4 Hrs. 27 Min.


This book has no pretension about it whatever - it is neither a Manual of Rhetoric, expatiating on the dogmas of style, nor a Grammar full of arbitrary rules and exceptions. It is merely an effort to help ordinary, everyday people to express themselves in ordinary, everyday language, in a proper manner. Some broad rules are laid down, the observance of which will enable the reader to keep within the pale of propriety in oral and written language. Many idiomatic words and expressions, peculiar to the language, have been given, besides which a number of the common mistakes and pitfalls have been placed before the reader so that he may know and avoid them.
