A Pun My Word
A Humorously Enlightened Path To English UsageBook - 1991
Designed as an entertaining and informative handbook, this reference book deals with difficult, misunderstood, misused or abused words, pairs and groups of words. Robert Shipman's aim is to explain their difficulty or confused use in clear, concise prose, to identify their parts of speech, to define their meanings and to illustrate their correct use through humourous examples. The underlying idea is that words can be used with both the preciseness of a surgeon and the wittiness of a jester.
