False teachings -- the history of the origin of the language -- common errors in pronunciation, grammar, spelling, etc., with specific examples of right and wrong. Prone to give details rather than generalities. Application to everyday speech. A good piece of work, which should have a double market -- a handbook, and a book on words for those interested in the subject.Copyright Kirkusreviews.com
