Description: In Word Court, Wallraff moves beyond her column to tackle common and uncommon items, establishing rules for such issues as turns of phrase, slang, name usage, punctuation, and newly coined vocabulary. With true wit, she deliberates and decides on the right path for lovers of language, ranging from classic questions -- is "a historical" or "an historical" correct? -- to awkward issues -- How long does someone have to be dead before we should all stop calling her "the late"? Should you use "like" or "as" -- and when? The result is a warmly humorous, reassuring, and brilliantly perceptive tour of how and why we speak the way we do.
