The Write Stuff: The Style Guide With A Difference (3nd Edition) | Encyclopaedias & General Reference

Johan Geldenhuys , Dave Dykman , Bittie Viljoen-Smook

Pharos

The Write Stuff deals with issues such as the difference between ‘content’ and ‘contents’, ‘may’ and ‘might’, ‘entrance’ and ‘entry’, ‘you’ and I’ and ‘you and me’, and more than 50 other problematic pairs. These confusables are explained with examples of usage.

This new and expanded edition of The Write Stuff contains a number of articles on current issues, making it a real gem. With its simple layout and examples clearly shown in grey, the guide remains popular among professionals and ‘ordinary’ people with a passion for language.

Expanded to include the concepts of plain language as well as many examples to facilitate understanding and application, this handy reference also helps you test your knowledge through a number of added activities, with answers at the end of the guide.

As business-writing style, tone, manner, conventions and best practice are constantly changing, and legislation increasingly requires the use of clear and unambiguous language, The Write Stuff comes as a handy and concise update for everybody who writes. Everything is accessible through an expanded and easy-to-use index.

Gravitating into more elegant style, this edition includes tips on compact writing and disentangles dangling modifying phrases, something not dreamt of in other more workaday style guides.

The Write Stuff provides users of English with clear guidelines, supplies competent users with the tools they need to write even more effectively, and gives good writers the edge
