Containing a gold mine of useful advice on a wide array of common writing and speaking problems, the A-Z of English Usage features essential information about correct English that is needed on a day-to-day basis in a handy alphabetical sequence. Based on Oxford's world-leading dictionary research and contemporary language monitoring, it answers questions such as the difference between "principle" and "principal", why it's wrong to use "octopi" as the plural of "octopus", and whether to use "alumni" as the plural of "alumnus."

Great App

It took me awhile to find the right app to help me fill in the gaps for when I should of paid more attention in English class. I have a passion for Theology and am starting to learn Hebrew and Greek language which is taking me back to my English roots. Thanks for this great app, which also has many great features beyond just English usage!

Ads in this expensive of a paid app???

Hate to new updates Mobisystems has rolled out on iOS. There are two buttons now to promote the developers' other apps on the bottom of the screen. Which aren't removable and on an iPhone 4s size screen, take up about 1/8th of the total screen.
