Word Perfect is described by the author as having evolved from notes and observations made during his 30-year career as an editor and writer and reflects his own preoccupations and setting. Many French words and phrases are included, as well as terms related to publishing, printing, and papermaking, a discussion of forming comparative and superlative forms of adjectives, and a discussion of correct words denoting compass directions. Day-to-day questions of style and grammar, problem meanings, general and technical uses, and background information about the continuing evolution of the language are presented in a clear and accessible way. Word Perfect's interesting entries and its British outlook provide information less likely to appear in standard U.S. usage guides.
