Comment:        RE: SHK 15.0978 Figures of Speech

My favourites:

'Modern English Usage' - Fowler (Ubiquitous and marvellous)

'The King's English' - Fowler (less well known but worthy of a King and
an Empire)

Quite the most splendid works on the uses of English and the correct
terminology for its description you may find in this tired and unheroic age.
