Revue de presse

Am loving the Banned List. Will be my stock Xmas pressie. Was reading on bus earlier; woman next to me started tutting because I laughed too much. --Philip Cowley, Professor of Politics at Nottingham University

Reading the brilliant - or should that be superb? - John Rentoul Banned List manifesto. Must buy. --Benedict Brogan, Deputy Editor, The Daily Telegraph

Présentation de l'éditeur

Let me be clear. This book does not contain a raft of measures to address issues around the abuse of the English language. It is not a forward offering to proactively strategise a blue sky solution utilising key deliverables. Nor does it articulate a compelling and coherent vision for the coming period. The fact of the matter is, we need a step change in the way that we communicate if we are to avoid a spiral of decline. It is time to draw a line in the sand and consign certain linguistic atrocities to the dustbin of history. Welcome to The Banned List. The Banned List began with five cliches, and has grown steadily ever since. Here its creator, John Rentoul, sets out the need for such a list and argues the case for clear writing. He looks at the lure of the cliche and how jargon from different walks of life has made its way into the language everyone uses. Cloudy, meaningless words and tired, hackneyed phrases are not merely annoying, they make it hardr for us to communicate. The solution is simple, however. The Banned List shows you the traps to avoid and the rules to bear in mind when writing or speaking clearly and simply. It also contains The List in full. Keep it close to hand and you cannot go wrong. It's not rocket science.

I wondered if there were others, annoyed as I am with the increasing use of overworked cliches, metaphors and jargon. Here is a list of hundreds that I hope never to see or hear again. John Rentoul writes with knowledge, ire and humour.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 It was really really funny 16 juin 2014

I was expecting to giggle a little bit but this was actually laugh-out-loud funny. It also taught me a fair bit and I can apply his simple rules in my writing too - he explains why you should as well which is very helpful

Although a noble project, there are very strong and unfortunate biases at work that undermine the effectiveness and usability of this book. The author dismisses many words and phrases outright, without any explanation. This is very frustrating, because if there had been greater guidance or explanation, then perhaps I could agree with his outcomes. As it is, the work remains a useful addition to a writer's library, but it is not as complete as it could be.

I find the Banned List purchased from Amazoon interesting and helpful. Some are surprising. I try not to use the listed over used words and sayings. However, the list seems to lean towards the language of the author. We, in America, could add more to the lis.
