Beschreibung

If it is important to say what you mean and mean what you say, you will love this book and use it often.

English can be a minefield of embarrassment for writers when the wrong word is used and this is a must-have for business writers, executives, analysts, journalists and academics, who will be able to quickly untangle many misused and confusing words.

You will discover:

• Brief, everyday meanings of words mistaken for one another.

• Pairs of words so you can instantly spot the one you need.

• The difference between 'wanton' and 'wonton', and lots of other words that can trip up even accomplished writers.

• The real meanings of commonly misused words.

• The right word to use every time.

This is a dictionary of pairs from veteran business journalist David Coe.

David, who is Australia's authority on investor social media, spent decades working in leading newsrooms around the world, such as the Financial Review and The Times of London. In the cauldron of daily journalism, he developed a love for the precision and beauty of the English language as well as the discipline of a professional writer.

This book is the result.

From 'affect' and 'effect' through to 'yack' and 'yak', 1,101 Words2watch gives brief, everyday meanings in a clear, easy to use format.

Flick through it and see how easy it is to use the right word every time. It will never leave your desk.



Autorentext

David Coe developed in the cauldron of daily journalism a love for the precision and beauty of the English language as well as the discipline of a professional writer. He trained as a finance journalist and the newspapers he worked for include the Financial Review, The Australian, and both The Times and The Sun in London. David's career combines the discipline of financial journalism and investment banking with insights gained from 35 years of informal study into human behaviour in such diverse places as a Buddhist monastery; Sydney, Queensland and Cambridge universities; Findhorn in Scotland; the schools of Werner Erhard and John Demartini; and more than a dozen major newsrooms around the world. He is also an accomplished presenter, author, editor, animation producer, and script writer who gets quickly to the intellectual and emotional core of a business case. David, who is Australia's authority on investor social media, is a communications strategist with the rare ability to write for the head and the heart. His proficiency with written communications is the basis for many remarkable professional successes. These include creating a document for Macquarie Bank that brought in $12 million in share sales in its first 2 weeks and redesigning the finance pages of The Australian. Now he is the managing editor of Investor Torque, which helps listed companies engage tens of thousands of investors on social media.
