Book Description
Australian English is unique; having absorbed elements of British and American English, it has developed its own distinctive style. The Cambridge Australian English Style Guide is both an assessment of the current state of Australian English and a guide to its style and usage. It is full of interesting information about why certain preferences are coming into use and, without being prescriptive, will give users all the information they need to make an appropriate choice. With more than 2500 alphabetical entries and a range of diagrams, this book will make life easier for anyone who deals with written language.
