Times Literary Supplement, Benjamin George Friedman Jeremy Butterfield has given us easily the best edition of this beloved work since H. W. Fowler's original. For anyone who cares about the English language, this book will provide helpful guidance and fascinating distraction in equal measure.
Benjamin George Friedman, The Times Literary Supplement The book is impressively up to date, with entries on internet-related neologisms: hash-tag is here and selfie, and the verb to google (which Butterfield does not object to, insisting only that is should be capitalized) ... easily the best edition of this beloved work since H.W Fowler's original. For anyone who cares about the English language, this book will provide helpful guidance and fascinating distraction in equal measure.
Lisa Pettifer, Babel: The Language Magazine Butterfield's passion for discussing language is evident throughout ... This edition is rich in examples of language in use and discussion of debates about appropriate usage.

World Wide Words, Michael Quinion Butterfield has created a guide that is readable for entertainment as well as enlightenment.
The Herald, Alan Taylor I must congratulate Jeremy Butterfield, editor of the latest edition of Fowler's Dictionary of Modern English Usage. To wordsmiths such as myself, Fowler's is akin to the Koran or the Bible.

Henry Watson Fowler (1858-1933) worked as a teacher and freelance writer before going to Guernsey to form a remarkably successful writing partnership with his brother Francis. Most notably, the Fowler brothers wrote The King's English, and compiled the first edition of the Concise Oxford Dictionary (1911). Henry Fowler finished the Pocket Oxford Dictionary in 1924, and Modern English Usage, which made him a household name, in 1926.
