Overview

THE WRONG STUFF: FINDINGS OF A FORENSIC GRAMMARIAN is by Howard Denson, who says Americans have a perpetual fight between the Prescriptive Grammarians and the Descriptive Grammarians. One army's battle-cry is "no!" and its banner is dismal black. The Descriptives' battle-flag is white, and they cry "we surrender" to any language usage. The Presciptives fight "irregardless" and "alright," but the Descriptives embrace them. Denson guides the readers toward the Power Dialect, which will enable them to thrive. He finds language problems in stories and columns from U.S. publications and English-language publications overseas.
