Vivian Cook has a Chair of Applied Linguistics at the University of Newcastle.
Not a zero-tolerance guide, but a delightfully eclectic manual that
gently guides the reader through the often infuriating vagaries of

Cook serves up a pleasantly diverting mish-mash of word-lists, puzzles, historical digressions and Private Eye-style howlers ... as a browsable treat for self or others, it will fit that stocking-shaped gap in the gift market very neatly. * Boyd Tonkin *
