Lost for Words - John Humphrys


New year, new harsher scoring system. Language is my specialist area but this does nothing for the cause. So words are used to manipulate, are they? What a unique theory! So writers are ungrammatical, are they? Well, if they don't meet Humphrys' inconsistent notions of language use, they are. And this badly structured book doesn't even hang together as a coherent argument. Which is rather unfortunate, given its subject matter.
