Jeremy Butterfield is an OUP author, language expert, writer, and lexicographer. For many years he worked in senior editorial positions in Collins English and Bilingual Dictionaries. He is also the author of the popular book on the English language, Damp Squid: The English Language Laid Bare (2009), as well as the Oxford A-Z of English Usage (2013).
This book is useful and, like Hamilton says of the full version, of
general interest and even enjoyable. * Ray Ward, Committee Member
