Mitchell, Richard: Less Than Words Can Say. v1, 22 Aug 2008
In Less Than Words Can Say, Richard Mitchell lets rip the most devastating expose to date of our rampant misuse of English. A Don Quixote - Savonarola might be more apt - of language, he wages war on its perverters, from teachers and deans to politicians and bureaucrats, whose consistently overblown prose offers us inanity in the guise of wisdom.
Mitchell's cantankerous crusade indicts government agency "chairs'' for the intimidating and obfuscating "legalese'' of their profession, obsequious grantseekers who supplicate foundations in time-honored cant, and aspiring academics who speak in the Divine Passive.
