No description available, The broad aim of this lively and engaging book is to examine relationships between the linguistic patterns the stylistic functions and the social and cultural contexts of humour The material used in illustration is of corresponding breadth schoolyard jokes graffiti aphorisms advertisements arguments anecdotes puns parodies passages of comic fiction all come under Dr Nash s scrutiny, First published in this book examines the changing patterns in English usage and style It encourages a constructive attitude to language demonstrating the creative resources of grammar discussing in detail the options of written style and challenging the authoritarian spirit that inhibits usage The central chapters are concerned with written usage and pay close attention to questions of syntax and punctuation The sense of writing however is always related to speech and the value of usage as a social act is emphasised in the exploration of style as an individual function Technical terms are explained and the text is illustrated with examples from literature and journalism, Walter Nash recalls his childhood in an industrial town in north west England partly in vivid immediate recovery and partly in the reflective light of adult memory The old days of the s come to mind days of the family days of street life of hopscotch and coddymuck days of wireless and gramophone and the parlour piano days of sport and pastime days of schooling days of churchgoing With the memories of days come the memories of people parents grandparents kinsfolk teachers parsons Dickensian eccentrics like the medicine hawker the coalman the street preacher and the rag and bone man These people celebrated here for old times sake are the working class of once upon a day after never the same again
