Summary

WHEN WORDS COLLIDE is the most versatile grammar and usage handbook for beginning and continuing media writers. As a main text, the book is praised for its straightforward, clear treatment of grammar, offered in a lighthearted, almost conversational tone. As a handbook, the text serves as a reference tool for students throughout their writing careers. It provides concise and clear explanations and examples, and is a great source for a quick and accurate answer to a grammar or usage question.

  • Versatile as both an easy-to-use reference handbook and a grammar/usage textbook.

Choose to package InfoTrac College Edition (ICE) with this text and you and your students will have 4-month's free access to an easy-to-use online database of reliable, full-length articles (not abstracts) from hundreds of top academic journals and popular sources.
  • Clear, concise explanations of all important grammar issues that relate to a wide variety of media.
  • Timeless and appropriate examples compare correct with incorrect uses.
  • Chapter 11, Sense & Sensitivity, gives a thoughtful discussion of the "-isms" in writing: sexism, racism, ageism, etc.

  • Thoroughly rewritten and revised for even greater clarity.
  • Fresh, accurate examples in every chapter.
