KIRKUS REVIEW

Casual remarks about cliches, redundancies, incorrect usage, and pronunciation errors, intended to remove the ""static from your communications."" Ms. Martin also includes a ""Deletionary"" of the most abused and misused words--snuck, orientate, charisma, and the like. Strictly Speaking, Edwin Newman's done the same thing in a tonier prose that comments on modern life as well; we prefer his Civil Tongue to this token effort.
