Description: Spread the Word is the eleventh collection of columns on the English language written by noted pundit and linguistic raconteur William Satire. Contained within these pages are observations on, detailed corrections of, and musings about the proper usage of the English language. Safire, with keen wit and insight, dissects trends and traces the origins of colloquialisms that have become second nature to most Americans. A discussion of the term alpha male includes references to subjects as diverse as O.J. Simpson, a Norwegian zoologist, and Aldous Huxley. In another column, Safire takes laser-like aim at the subtleties and pitfalls of the words betwixt, among, and between. Also prominently featured are Safire's "Bloopie Awards, " which skewer mistakes submitted by readers. Often the original columns elicit impassioned responses and correspondence by Safire's devoted readership. A lively selection of the best of these letters is interspersed throughout the book, highlighting the dialogue Satire maintains with his avid audience. Throughout this vigorous and erudite assemblage, William Satire instills in readers his own incessant curiousity about words and their often amusing usage.
