Author: Robin Straaijer
Linguistic Field: Lexicography; Sociolinguistics
Subject Language: English
Abstract: Garner's Modern English Usage (hereafter Garner4) was published by Oxford University Press USA in 2016. Appearing within a span of two decades, it is the fourth edition of Bryan Garner's dictionary of usage, originally published as A Dictionary of Modern American Usage (Garner, 1998, hereafter Garner1). It is also the second dictionary of English usage to be published during the last three years, following the latest edition of what is arguably its most direct British counterpart, Fowler's Dictionary of Modern English Usage (Butterfield, 2015, hereafter Fowler4).
