How to Speak and Write Better English
A valuable book on learning better English by Prof. D.D Vaid, former Professor of English, University of Punjab.
In this book he deals extensively with the common errors that are generally made while writing and speaking English. The errors commonly known as 'Indianisms' are treated in detail, and he tells us how to avoid them.
Illustrated with hundreds of examples, the book is an essential reference aid to anyone who wants to have command over the English language. There are chapters on common idioms and their usage, phrases — their use and misuse — spelling, quotable quotes and proverbs. Separate chapters on punctuation and pronunciation make it a specially useful everyday reference.
