Ghomeshi has written a careful and intelligent book that teaches the reader a great deal about linguistics and about the English language. The book is a gem. — Lawrie Cherniack, Winnipeg Free PressIn a remarkably easy read, Ghomeshi guides us point by point through an analysis of the source of common language-biases and how they are woven into the very fabric of all of our social relationships. It’s not a far leap as the book unfolds to understand how language purism has become a refuge for types of biased thinking that people are now socially prohibited from expressing. Ghomeshi educates, entertains, and invites us all to deconstruct ourselves and our relationship with language.
