204 pp. Index. Price clipped dj with a crimp at head of spine and associated small dent in cloth at top of spine, slight rubbing on top corners of dj. Price sticker shadow and small black mark (less than 1/4 inch) on ffep. Like new, otherwise. Illustrated profusely throughout by Rikki Ducornet. 'Since I am much more drawn to vocabulary, imagination, fluency, and fluidity than strictures of structure, grammatical chastity belts, and rules, I tilted this book (at a rakish angle) into the territory of usage, which is also rife with potential faux pas--false steps--and terror.'
