This entertaining and informative handbook deals with hundreds of difficult or misunderstood words-pairs and groups of words which are troublesome, misused, or abused. Drawing on a lifetime love affair with words, teacher, scholar, and professional communicator Robert Oliver Shipman explains their difficulty or confused use in clear, concise prose, identifies their parts of speech, defines their meanings, and illustrates their correct use through witty and humorous examples. A Pun My Word shows that words can be used with both the preciseness of a surgeon and the wittiness of a jester. A Writer's Digest Book Club Selection.
Robert Shipman is an Emeritus Professor of Mass Communications, Mankato State University.
