Simply English - An A-Z Of Avoidable Errors (Paperback): Simon Heffer Simply English - An A-Z Of Avoidable Errors (Paperback)
Simon Heffer 1
R378 R314 Discovery Miles 3 140 Save R64 (17%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

In his best-selling Strictly English Simon Heffer explained how to write and speak our language well. In Simply English he offers an entertaining and supremely useful A-Z guide to frequent errors, common misunderstandings and stylistic howlers. What is the difference between amend and emend, between imply and infer, and between uninterested and disinterested? When should one put owing to rather than due to? Why should the temptation to write actually, basically or at this moment in time always be strenuously resisted? How does one use an apostrophe correctly, ensure that one understands what alibi really means, and avoid the perils of the double negative? With articles on everything from punctuation to tabloid English to adverbs and adjectives, Simply English is the essential companion for anyone who cares about the language and wants to use it correctly.

Norme vir Afrikaans (nou reeds in 'n sesde uitgawe) het sedert 1989 bewys gelewer dat dit 'n besonder effektiewe bron is vir gebruik in taalkundeklaskamers van tersiere instellings en selfs in skole. Die boek is aan die een kant 'n praktiese naslaanbron wat as basis vir eie taalontwikkeling kan dien. Aan ander kant word in die aanpak probeer om taalteorie en taalpraktyk te versoen. Dat die outeur hierin geslaag het, is bewys deur die gereelde bywerk van die boek en die wye gebruik daarvan. In die besonder fokus die boek op die verskeidenheid "norme" wat 'n mens in gedagte moet hou by die praktiese gebruik van Afrikaans, onder meer die beginsels onderliggend aan hierdie norme, en dan ook die identifisering van belangrike en nuttige bronne van taaladvies oor problematiese taalsake. Die doel van die boek is nie om streng "normatief" te probeer voorskryf nie, maar eerder om leiding te gee in die hantering van praktiese taalkwessies met as vertrekpunt gefundeerde taalteoretiese kennis oor die Afrikaanse taalkunde. Die boek is nou al deeglik gevestig as 'n omvattende en uiters bruikbare hulpmiddel vir sowel student as dosent en is die vrug van die outeur se jarelange ondervinding as taaldosent en navorser. Daar word ook rekening gehou met die geleidelike herstandaardisering van Afrikaans, vandaar die nuwe subtitel "Moderne Standaardafrikaans", wat 'n aanduiding is dat Afrikaans in die proses is om te moderniseer vir 'n nuwe geslag gebruikers. Die riglyne van die elfde uitgawe van die Afrikaanse Woordelys en Spelreels (AWS) (2017) is volledig in hierdie uitgawe verreken.

Drawing on vast amounts of new data from live, unscripted radio and TV broadcasts, and the internet, this is a brilliant and original analysis of colloquial English, revealing unusual and largely unreported types of clause structure. Andrew Radford debunks the myth that colloquial English has a substandard, simplified grammar, and shows that it has a coherent and complex structure of its own. The book develops a theoretically sophisticated account of structure and variation in colloquial English, advancing an area that has been previously investigated from other perspectives, such as corpus linguistics or conversational analysis, but never before in such detail from a formal syntactic viewpoint.
