Description
Say What You Mean! lays down the laws for writing simple, effective, and unambiguous sentences, the kind that deliver the facts, influence opinion, and make things work throughout the English-speaking world - and that you and every other American grown-up must know how to write if you want to be understood by others.Since it was published in England in 2001, Say What You Mean! has become a must-read among journalists, writers, educators, and language-mavens - everyone who needs to know the difference between lesser and fewer, disinterested and uninterested, and hire, rent, and charter.
