Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 185626484X, Paperback)Do you know the difference between acetic and ascetic? Burgers and burghers? Bucolic and alcoholic? Complaisant and compliant? A cassock, a Cossack, a hassock, a hillock, a hummock and a pillock? If not, this book provides the answers. With entries varying from pithy brevity to mini essays, this textbook should be useful for anyone who has ever been caught using the wrong word in the wrong place (or been caught out being too clever by half). Readers, writers and students of media studies will find answers to frequently asked questions - and a number of questions it has never occurred to them to ask.
