Ever since Henry Watson Fowler published the Dictionary of Modern English Usage in 1926, his name has been referred to as an authority on the English language. This latest edition of Fowler's, updated by R.W. Burchfield, is no exception. Modern English Usage is interesting and informative, but never dry. It features a certain style that most other reference books lack.
