Watson, Don, 1949-
English language - Australia - Usage.; English language - Social aspects - Australia.; Soziolinguistik.
Today's corporations, government departments, news media and politicians speak to each other and to us in cliched, impenetrable, lifeless sludge. In Death Sentence, part diatribe, part cool reflection on the state of Australia's public language, Watson takes a blowtorch to the words and their users, who kill joy and clarity.
