A Dictionary Of Modern English Usage

A Dictionary Of Modern English Usage

by H W Fowler

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.
