Guardian Style will help you distinguish between so-called rules of grammar that are an aid to good writing and those that you can cheerfully ignore. It is also a mine of information about everything from spelling to punctuation, and from commonly misused words to foreign terms and expressions. If you're not sure what the difference is between principle and principal, if you have ever been puzzled by the rules governing the use of that and which, if you are unsure as to whether brackets and parentheses are the same thing, then this superbly straightforward and straight-talking reference guide is certainly for you. For this new edition, hundreds of entries have been added or expanded, a new section has been added on editing for the web, and a number of the Guardian's leading journalists have agreed to share their top hints and suggestions.
