Summary

Wherever you are, whatever the company, proper English will always stand you in good stead. However, the world's most important language does have a number of difficult areas and pitfalls for the unwary. Fortunately, “Her Ladyship” is here to help you avoid them—and teach you how to pronounce “schedule” the English way and find the right synonym for “toilet” when you’re chatting to bishops and barons. She covers: common mistakes in grammar (which will belie a lowly upbringing), typical misspellings, frequently misused words, and the all-important choice of phrases to use in posh society . . . with a guide to pronouncing them correctly.
