    Title: But Can I Start a Sentence With But? Advice from the Chicago Style Q&A
    Author: CHICAGO PRESS UNIVERSITY STAFF

    Q. Is it happy medium or happy median ? My author writes: We would all be much better served as stewards of finite public funds if we could find that happy median where trust reigns supreme. Thanks
    A. The idiom is happy medium, but I like the image of commuters taking refuge from road rage on the happy median.
    Q. How do I write a title of a song in the body of the work (caps, bold, underline, italics, etc.)? Example: The Zombies She s Not There looped in his head.
    A. Noooo Now that song is looping in my head ( but it s too late to say you re sorry ... ). Use quotation marks. Thanks a lot.
    Every month, tens of thousands of self-declared word nerds converge upon a single site: "The Chicago Manual of Style Online"'sQ&A. There the "Manual" s editors open the mailbag and tackle readers questions on topics ranging from abbreviation to word division to how to reform that coworker who still insists on two spaces between sentences. Champions of common sense, the editors offer smart, direct, and occasionally tongue-in-cheek responses that have guided writers and settled arguments for more than fifteen years.
    "But Can I Start a Sentence with But ? "brings together the best of theChicago Style Q&A." "Curated from years of entries, it features some of the most popular and hotly debated rulings and also recovers old favorites long buried in the archives.
    Questions touch on myriad matters of editorial style capitalization, punctuation, alphabetizing, special characters as well as grammar, usage, and beyond ( How do I spell out the sound of a scream? ). A foreword by Carol Fisher Saller, the Q&A s longtime editor, takes readers through the history of the Q&A and addresses its reputation for mischief. ( It s not that we set out to be cheeky, she writes.)
    Taken together, the questions and answers offer insights into some of the most common issues that face anyone who works with words. They re also a comforting reminder that even the best writer or editor needs a little help and humor sometimes."

    Title: Can You Eat Shoot & Leave
    Author: DIGNALL CLARE

    The punctuation workout for sticklers and rookies alike. Armed with Can You Eat, Shoot and Leave? "" established punctuation sticklers will fine-tune existing skills, taking guilty pleasure from testing their (already somewhat unsettling) seventh sense. Confused novices need never again inflict the agony of the unclosed bracket on an innocent readership. Even the most benighted soul will discover that understanding the colon is not the preserve of bespectacled proofreaders and hydrotherapists. Equipped with knowledge, confidence, and a permanent marker (yes, that was an Oxford comma), any one of us now has a chance to become a member of the punctuation master-class. The workbook follows the structure of Lynne Truss ""s Eats, Shoots and Leaves "". Each of the five chapters presents guidance on an area of punctuation usage followed by exercises to put the reader ""s knowledge to the test. Topics include: apostrophes, commas, colons and semicolons, hyphens and more. The tone of the book is light and humorous. For example, readers are asked to add commas to a passage and then, based on their results, complete a magazine-style quiz to evaluate their punctuation-personality. The final section The Challenge "" contains whole passages for the reader to punctuate and test everything they have learned. A detailed and easy-to-follow Answer key is included.

    Title: Chineasy Every Day: The World of Chinese Characters
    Author: SHAOLAN

    Chineasy, the brainchild of entrepreneur ShaoLan Hsueh, has been a publishing phenomenon. Its special building-block learning method brought to life by highly recognizable and appealing graphic illustrations has attracted a substantial online following and has been published in fifteen languages. But it marks only the beginning of a larger ambition to educate the world about the richness and character of China's people, its customs and its heritage. The first volume of Chineasy introduced the method and visual language. This follow-up volume, which requires no experience of the first, expands the scope to include all facets of Chinese life and culture in twelve central sections. Each begins with an overview of key characters before a presentation of the subject using those characters as a basis, providing insight into how Chinese thinking has shaped its language and civilization in a way that anyone can understand and appreciate. As children are increasingly taking up Mandarin, and as business exchange with China develops, this is a single-volume encyclopedia on China that will stimulate young minds, enchant the culturally minded and inspire everyone who seeks new experiences and a wider understanding of the world we live in.

    Title: Chinese for Beginners: Mastering Conversational Chinese
    Author: REN YI & LIANG XIAYUAN

    Chinese for Beginners is an excellent, user-friendly book for learning the Chinese language.

    Yi Ren has taught thousands of Americans to speak Chinese fluently. Now, she and co-author Xiayuan Liang share their secrets for fast mastery of Mandarin Chinese with you. China has 1.3 billion people, and due to initiatives to phase out regional dialects in favor of Mandarin Chinese, nearly all of them can communicate in Mandarin. Don't let yourself be intimidated by this rewarding language. Although it is true that mastery of the Chinese language takes time, Mandarin Chinese has simpler grammar than English, and there are no conjugations--meaning anyone can learn a few critical phrases in no time.

    Chock full of extra hints and tips from the authors' many years of experience teaching Mandarin Chinese in adult evening classes, Chinese for Beginners focuses on realistic situations you'll encounter when you meet people in China. New words are explained concerning how you'll use them to communicate with new friends. The audio-CD is another excellent way to learn Chinese and lets you listen and repeat and remember the sentences with ease, and will help you soon declare with pride, "I can say that in Chinese "

    Chinese for Beginners includes:

    • Lighthearted approaches that bring Chinese to life in a down-to-earth fashion.
    • Real-life dialogues and situations to help you converse with confidence.
    • An "Extend Your Vocabulary" feature in each chapter helps you to remember and understand more words that you'd think possible.
    • Native-speaker audio recordings teach you to pronounce Chinese tones accurately.
    • Answer Keys help you keep track of your learning process.
    • Interesting notes, idioms, sayings, photos, poems, and insider tips about China's culture, unique places, and everyday life add to the adventure.

    This user-friendly guide to learning the basics will work for anyone who wants to speak and understand Chinese for business, for pleasure, or for travel--and who wants to enjoy the process of learning a new language while they're at it

    Title: Churchill in Quotes: Wit & Wisdom from the Great Statesman
    Author: AMMONITE PRESS STAFF (EDITOR)

    Sir Winston Churchill, statesman, orator, and former prime minister, was a man whose words gave hope and inspiration to the British people, and many are as relevant today as they were during the war years. Churchill's speeches were not always confined to serious political rhetoric and motivation. His off-the-cuff quips and comments displayed a wry wit and humor. Churchill in Quotes is a celebration of this outstanding figure in British history, presented in almost four hundred photographs handpicked from the vast archives of the Press Association. It covers the major events in Churchill's life, including his birth and early days at Blenheim Palace to his marriage and the birth of his children; his service in the army, war correspondence, and role as first lord of the Admiralty, and appointment as chancellor the Exchequer; his formation of government as wartime prime minister and the political and cabinet posts held during almost fifty years; his career as a historian and author; and his hobby as a sensitive artist.
