'Brilliant, clear, entertaining, very funny and often outright silly. Brandreth excels . . . in all his linguistic joie de vivre' Guardian
Why, like, does everyone keep saying 'like'?
Why do apostrophe's keep turning up in the wrong place?
Why do we get confused when using foreign phrases - and vice versa?
Is it 'may be' or 'maybe'? Should it be 'past' or 'passed'? Is it 'referenda' or 'referendums'?
FFS, what's happening to our language!?
Our language is changing, literacy levels are dwindling and our grasp of grammar is at crisis point, so you wouldn't be alone in thinking WTF! But do not despair, Have You Eaten Grandma? is here: Gyles Brandreth's definitive (and hilarious) guide to punctuation, spelling, and good English for the twenty-first century.
Without hesitation or repetition (and just a touch of deviation) Gyles, the Just A Minute regular and self-confessed grammar guru, skewers the linguistic horrors of our time, tells us where we've been going wrong (and why), and reveals his tips and tricks to ensure that, in future, we make fewer (rather than 'less') mistakes. End of.
(Is 'End of' alright? Is 'alright' all right? You'll find out right here . . . )
'Best thing ever, laugh-a-lot, spanning everything. Great book, I'm loving this' Chris Evans, BBC Radio 2

Descripción Penguin Books Ltd, 2018. HC. Condición: New. Brandreth, like us, is a language obsessive and a punctuation perfectionist. He thinks good spelling is essential. (Memo to Canberra Times which wrote of a ?spinal chord' injury last weekend.) He tells us what?s right, what?s wrong, when it matters, and when it doesn?t. His chapter on the use of the apostrophe is particularly pleasing. We highly recommend this book as it can change your life. Nº de ref. del artículo: 9780241352632
