?There has never been, OCO Nunberg writes, ?an age as wary as ours
of the tricks words can play, obscuring distinctions and smoothing
over the corrugations of the actual world.... Yet as advertisers
and marketers know, our mistrust of words doesnOCOt inoculate us
against them.OCO These are the years of talking dangerously, and
Nunberg is a sure guide to the pitfalls. With illuminating
intelligence and devastating humor, Nunberg decodes the changing
syntax of "Time Magazine," explains why grammar buffs are drawn to
sarcasm, and deftly unpacks the telling phrases of our national
conversation, from "progressive" to "elite" to "change"?not to
mention "national conversation" itself."
