English: The Last Frontier…

I have just received a wonderful book, by Caroline Taggart, called “Her Ladyship’s Guide to the QUEEN’S ENGLISH.” It is absolutely delightful, covering English words, phrases, and structure. This little book not only addresses many of the differences between American and British English, it strives to help us attain elegant English. While this may sound like a subject from the Victorian era, the book itself is delightful. It is written with a light hand and a delightful sense of humor, and provides extremely useful insight into the English of England. While it is invaluable to anyone reading, studying or writing English literature (or fiction set in England!), it is a surprisingly entertaining read. I have been dipping into different sections with great pleasure. This little book just may be a bridge between American and British English speakers: two groups separated by a common language!
