"A most welcome ... clear ... addition to your collection of interesting, informative lexicons." --Globe and Mail "Splendidly comprehensive, beautifully organized, lucidly written, this book seems certain to become not only the standard reference work on its subject but also an important contribution to the ongoing debates about how language is used." --Canadian Literature "A book to end all arguments, it should also prove invaluable to word-smiths of all stripes." --Halifax Daily News "A good book, well worth having." --Books in Canada "... the [Guide to Canadian English Usage] makes a balanced presentation of areas where controversy may arise in English usage, carving out for itself a niche which distinguishes it from a standard dictionary on the one hand and from an encyclopedia on the other. The volume will be of use to Canadian students, scholars, and writers as a reference source; to researchers and writers outside of Canada as a source of data on Canadian English usage; and to anyone interested not just in English but in general knowledge of Canada as a source of entertainment and information to be 'snacked' on from time to time or even to be devoured cover to cover." --Language, the journal for the Linguistic Society of America
