About the eBook
This 60-page PDF booklet aims at increasing awareness of faulty language behavior and motivating daily action to correct such behavior.
In the first two sections of the text, Dr. Lahman (Professor of Communication Studies at Manchester University) shows how general semantics can be used as a systematic inquiry into language behavior. In the remaining four sections, Dr. Lahman follows with an application of these formulations, including case studies.
