A Dictionary Of Modern English Usage

By Fowler, H W




A Dictionary of Modern English Usage (1926), by Henry W. Fowler, is a style guide to British English usage, pronunciation, and writing. Ranging from plurals and literary technique to the distinctions among like words (homonyms, synonyms, etc. ), to foreign-term use, it became the standard for most style guides that followed — thus, the 1926 first edition remains in print despite the existence of the 1965 second edition, and the 1996 and 2004 printings of the third edition.

A Dictionary of Modern English Usage

Fowler, H.W

Oxford University Press, UK, 1950. Hardcover. Very Good/NDJ. "First published in 1926... [this book] is one of the most celebrated reference books of the twentieth century. Commonly known as 'Fowler,' after its inimitable author... it has sold more than a million copies and maintained a devoted following over seven decades, in large part because of its charming blend of information and good humor, delivered in the voice of a genial if somewhat idiosyncratic schoolmaster. 'Reading Fowler,' William F. Buckley once noted, 'provides instruction and knowledge and direction, but the whole of it is a sensual delight.' ...The first place to turn for sensible advice on the thorny issues of grammar, meaning, and pronunciation, 'Fowler' is one of those rare reference books that can also be read simply for pleasure."
