Bryan Garner is the editor of "Black's Law Dictionary" and the author of "A Dictionary of Modern Legal Usage." With thousands of succinct entries as well as extensive essays, Garner deals with grammar, syntax, word choice, punctuation, capitalization, spelling, and style. Painstakingly researched with copious examples drawn from print sources, this usage guide is nonetheless highly approachable and enjoyable, combining expertise and wit.
I use this book as my primary working reference. Part style guide, part dictionary, part witty banter on the subject of language - a must-have for any translator or editor working with American English!
