Disambiguation Notice

A Dictionary of Modern English Usage, originally written by H. W. Fowler, has been the subject of two revisions: a light revision by Sir Ernest Gowers and a far more extensive revision by R. W. Burchfield. This latter revision should not be considered the same work as the original, or the Gowers revision. Combiners of the two will be tarred and feathered. Note also that The King's English was co-written by Henry Watson Fowler and his brother Francis.
