Editorial Reviews

Review

"I can unhesitatingly recommend WHEN WORDS COLLIDE to any colleague in media studies and journalism, but I've also recommended it to my colleagues in the areas of Composition/Rhetoric. I think it could easily work as an English handbook-and is actually superior to most handbooks dedicated to English."

"An engaging approach to style and grammar targeted at a college audience that has for the most part not studied or practiced grammar since middle school."
