9780199342624: Understanding Style: Practical Ways to Improve Your Writing

Understanding Style: Practical Ways to Improve Your Writing, Third Edition, uses the findings of modern linguistics to explore the relationship between written and spoken voices and to uncover little-known ways to control rhythm and emphasis. With a focus on sound and voice, author Joe Glaser explains and illustrates measurable, non-subjective keys to good writing--an approach that yields practical writing techniques and advice rarely found elsewhere. An excellent choice for courses in advanced composition, this book also covers more standard topics such as economy, diction, coherence, and variety--along with abundant open-ended exercises drawn from business, history, popular science, and other areas.

About the Author:


Joe Glaser is Professor Emeritus of English at Western Kentucky University.

Review:


"Understanding Style: Practical Ways to Improve Your Writing lives up to its subtitle. It will help writers at almost any level improve their writing in almost any genre--academic, professional, or creative."--Theodore Remington, University of Saint Francis


"Glaser's volume is clearly one way to restore the writer's sensibility or to, at minimum, expose students to these ideas. There are a million composition and rhetoric texts with the same lock-step process-this isn't one of them."--Susan Sutherlin, Butler University
