English is a glorious mess of a language, cobbled together from a wide variety of sources and syntaxes, and changing over time with popular usage. Many of the words and usages we embrace as standard and correct today were at first considered slang, impolite, or just plain wrong. Whether you consider yourself a stickler, a nitpicker or a rule-breaker in the know, BAD ENGLISH is sure to enlighten, enrage and perhaps even inspire. Filled with contemporary and historic examples, the book chronicles the long and entertaining history of language mistakes.
