One thought on “Word Abuse”

  1. Cross was teaching at Syracuse University at the time I read this book Wish I could have taken a class from her She points out how words can be used, especially in advertising, to deceive and manipulate Interesting stuff.

  2. Unfortunately, the book has become dated with age It was written in the 1970 s and it shows The ideas that were new at the time are now cliche.

  3. Much of these ideas are old hat these days For my purposes, the screed against 1960s education for ruining language is great stuff.
