AUTHOR

Smith, Ken

SUMMARY

In Junk English, Ken Smith takes on the misuse, abuse, and downright decay of the English language. His weapons? A sharp wit and an almost frightening grasp of the depths of the decline. Written so that the ordinary writer and speaker of English can readily see how the manipulation of words keeps the culture in a haze of misunderstandings and vagueness, Junk English covers the whole spectrum of the problem. In short sections such as "Butt-Covering," "Feeble Beginnings," "God Is on Our Team," "Sports Talk," and "Touchy-Feely Therapy Talk," Smith shows how everyone from Madison Avenue to middle America has succumbed to euphemisms, mindless jargon, and weasel words. The book's inclusion of basic advice on how to avoid lazy language shows there's at least some hope for the future.Smith, Ken is the author of 'Junk English' with ISBN 9780922233236 and ISBN 0922233233.
