The Plain English Guide offers down-to -earth advice and twenty easy-to-follow guidelines covering plain words, se ntence length, active and passive verbs, punctuation, planning, and good or ganization of points.

51 Elster, Charles Harringto THERE'S A WORD FOR IT!: A GRANDILOQUENT GUIDE TO LIFE
Gallery Books 1997 0671778587 / 9780671778583 Paperback Very Good 
Warning: This is not simply another book about obscure English words. Inste ad, it's an open-armed invitation to go on a mischievous, quirky, madcap ex pedition through the depths of our unabridged dictionaries, where you will learn about all the exceptional words you never knew you needed to know to live a fuller, more verbally enriched life. Consider that without realizing it we may have engaged in acokoinonia (sex without passion or desire), bee n bored to tears by the company of a philodox (someone in love with his or her own opinions), or suffered from recurrent matutolypea (getting up on th e wrong side of the bed). There's a Word for It! will help you plug gaping holes in your vocabulary and apply vibrant color to the blank spots in your picture of the world. The book also contains a dazzling selection of light verse by such famous (and fabulous) scribes as Hogden Gnash, Anais Numb, a nd G. B. Pshaw. Get ready to dig into this delectable lexical feast, served up by the language connoisseur William Safire calls "ek-STROR-di-ner-ee."

PROVERBS & SAYINGS OF IRELAND, Gaffney, Sean
59 Gaffney, Sean PROVERBS & SAYINGS OF IRELAND
Wolfhound Press 1974 0950345407 / 9780950345406 Paperback Very Good 
A tight clean softcover, no markings throughout: Arranged by subject, Proverbs and Sayings of Ireland, is an illustrated col lection of more than 1,000 proverbs, sayings and triads (a three part piece of wisdom) from all of over Ireland. Apart from their unceasing curiosity as "words of wisdom," proverbs enable us to peer through the half door, as it were, and glimpse the attitudes, folk memories and philosophies of a people. In this collection, little escapes the barb: priests, the demon drink, the lover, society, ideas, virtues and vices. But there is also humor and pride, faith and love...and the odd word of caution: "To praise God is proper, but a wise man won't blackguard the devil!"
