Description - Oxford Guide to Plain English by Martin Cutts
Plain English is the art of writing clearly, concisely, and in a way that precisely communicates your message to your intended audience. This book consists of 25 practical guidelines helping you to improve your vocabulary, style, grammar, and layout to achieve clear writing. Completely revised and updated, this essential reference work is now even more useful: the word lists have been expanded; a new list of cliched and troublesome words to
avoid has been added; there is new coverage of writing with a style guide; and the general sources and examples of real life stories have been replaced with more recent ones.
