Hamish Hamilton, London - first edition, 1978. hardcover, 8 3/4" x 5 1/2", with dust jacket. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOODunclipped duist jacket. Red cloth-bound boards with gold type to spine, index. Oh, the English language! It survives our worst efforts to maltreat it. This book deals in detail about forty specific examples of words and phrases that have recently changed their meanings. Try these: Absolutely, Analogue, Basically, Cheers, Commonality, Consultation, Data, Dilemma, Doctor, Escalate, Feedback, Irony, Loo, Matrix, Orchestrate, Platonic, Pristine, Quantum, Simplistic, Whom etc etc. Each is subject to an essay, most of them decently but tolerantly prescriptive.
