The A–Z of Correct English is a reference book which has been
written for the student and the general reader. It aims to tackle the
basic questions about spelling, punctuation, grammar and word usage
that the student and the general reader are likely to ask.
Throughout the book there are clear explanations, and exemplar
sentences where they are needed. When it’s helpful to draw
attention to spelling rules and patterns, these are given so that the
reader is further empowered to deal with hundreds of related words.
The aim always has been to make the reader more confident and
increasingly self-reliant.


This is a fast-track reference book. It is not a dictionary although,
like a dictionary, it is arranged alphabetically. It concentrates on
problem areas; it anticipates difficulties; it invites cross-references. By
exploring punctuation, for example, and paragraphing, it goes far
beyond a dictionary’s terms of reference. It is not intended to
replace a dictionary; it rather supplements it.
Once, in an evening class, one of my adult students said, ‘If
there’s a right way to spell a word, I want to know it.’ On another
occasion, at the end of a punctuation session on possessive
apostrophes, a college student said rather angrily, ‘Why wasn’t I told
this years ago?’
This book has been written to answer all the questions that my
students over the years have needed to ask. I hope all who now use
it will have their questions answered also and enjoy the confidence
and the mastery that this will bring.
