    Modern Australian Usage
    A practical guide for writers and editors
    Q: Why have a guide to using language when you can look it up on the internet? A: Because you often can't find a clear or reliable answer. However, Nicholas Hudson's wonderfully comprehensive and practical compendium on the English language will tell you what you need to know. Should you use 'lay' or 'lie'? How do you use a semicolon correctly? What's a willy - willy? The difference between a town and a city, or a boat and a ship? In his witty and pithy entries, Nicholas Hudson identifies commonly confused terms. He explains how to use the key elements of English grammar and punctuation to convey the meaning you intend. He highlights distinctively Australian usage and terms, and covers the impact of digital technologies on writing and publishing. Modern Australian Usage should be on the desk of every writer who wants to expand their understanding of our rich and frustrating language. 'A comprehensive usage guide based on great knowledge, experience and love of language... immensely readable...' - Susan Butler, The Editor, Macquarie Dictionary 'Insightful and original observations on Australian usage: an essential read for all lovers of language.' - Kate Burridge, Professor of Linguistics, Monash University
