A Guide to English Language Usage

is a well-received book guiding non-native speakers through the complications of the English language, looking at grammar and pronunciation, with also some comments on culture. It has been called 'Fowler for foreigners.' Written by a practising teacher with nearly 30 years’ experience in Spain it is the distillation of many years of explanations to students.

NOTES ABOUT PRICES

The Spanish retail price for paper books is registered with the ISBN for each book; prices in other countries are by arrangement with the publisher. Prices of paper books sold by Amazon differ between sites because of exchange rate fluctuations, Amazon's discounting policy, and varying VAT rates in different countries.

For Kindle editions, Lavengro Books sets a price for amazon.es. Amazon keeps this same sale price for all eurozone sites and converts it automatically for currencies used on other sites.

TECHNICAL NOTES FOR KINDLE EDITIONS

Horse or Mackerel is published as a normal Kindle mobi file.

The Kindle editions of Pearls of the English Language and Great English Mistakes have been prepared using Kindle Text Book Creator.

* Amazon describes them as replica or facsimile editions, but in fact they are  completely separate presentations of the text, optimised for electronic viewing.

* The requirements for preparation, maintaining the format and phonetic symbols, mean that they are prepared from pdf files and are displayed page by page. They cannot be viewed on Kindle e-ink devices such as Paperwhite and cannot be downloaded to these devices.

* They can be viewed on Kindle Fire, Android and Apple devices.

* The books contain hyperlinks for cross references. These do not function on Apple devices. This is apparently Apple’s decision. It has nothing to do with Lavengro Books or, it seems, with Amazon.

* Lavengro Books is an honest and transparent publisher. We wish to have these technical limitations made clear to potential purchasers. However, the availability and functionality of Kindle editions on different devices is entirely a matter for Amazon. Lavengro Books has no liability for the accuracy of this information, which is provided for information purposes only.
