Wordy phrases kill good writing. They mark a writer as an amateur, or worse yet, as lazy. But sometimes it is hard to find a concise way to say something. That's where this dictionary comes in. This 400-page compendium lists thousands of common, wordy phrases that too many writers rely on, and offers concise alternatives. This book is an outstanding tool for writers who are serious about cleaning up their writing. And it is actually fun to read! This is a revised and expanded version of a book by the same author issued by Writer's Digest Books in 1994.
