HOW TO MAKE SENSE

This popularizer of pruned speech continues his forays into the wildernesses of communication and comes up with some assaults on grammar, vocabulary building and punctuation. He also does his bit for building up a personal approach to language, using it in a healing form and mastering it as tool for better adjustment to the world's ""din of words"". His revised ""readability formula"" is included and this mathematical equation is shown as a further aid to improvement in writing. Along with illustrations from writings of all kinds, recommendations for further study and analyses of formal and informal speech, this is also a practice guide, well bolstered with pointers, facts and warnings. (These seems to be a majority ruling against the literary and for the merely literate here.) For his devotees.
