A World Without 'Whom' is Eats, Shoots & Leaves for the Internet age, and Emmy Favilla is the go-to expert of Internet-speak.

As language evolves faster than ever before, what is the future of 'correct' style? With wry cleverness and an uncanny intuition for the possibilities of Internet-age expressiveness, Favilla argues that rather than try to preserve the sanctity of the written language as laid out by Strunk and White, we should be concerned with the larger issues of clarity, flexibility, playfulness and political awareness.

Her approach to the new rules - as practical as they are fun - will fascinate and delight believers and naysayers alike. This engaging, provocative book about how language changes is as full of humour and charm as it is full of useful advice and is essential for anyone invested in the future of words and writing.
