No Uncertain Terms
William Safire
Call Number
428 SAF

Even if you are not fanatical about grammatically correct English, you will still enjoy the author’s wit and dig on incorrect use of the language.

This collection contains Safire’s writings featured in The New York Times Magazine. Skip the denser articles if you are not in the mood; you will still find the light hearted writings a good read.

For instance, how did the noun ‘bathing suit’ evolve into the ‘bikini’? Safire mused that when stripped to the essentials, the trikini is three pieces, the bikini two and the monokini one. So, when will we see the Zeroniki?
