Grammar maven Patricia M. Godfrey offers guidance to "working professional copy editors and any others who share their love of the English language and who delight to explore its byways" in fifteen essays that originally appeared in "The Wizard of Rs," a regular column in the Editorial Freelancers Association newsletter. Discussing issues of grammar and syntax, idiom and semantics, and punctuation and typography, "this brief collection will clarify a few obscure points, warn of imminent linguistic peril, or simply add to the knowledge and relish with which its readers regard the language."
