In this humorous and educational book, Dennis Baron—a.k.a. Dr. Grammar—answers the questions that he is most frequently asked about what is right and what is wrong with English. His answers will convince you that English is as lively and elastic as ever and that reading about language can delight as well as instruct. This book won't tell you whether to use that or which, but after reading it, you won't want to know that anyway. Instead, it addresses timely topics: Is there a language police? Is there a politically correct term for the president's spouse? Can a doll write like a person? Is "Make my day" a cliché?
