<div>When Kate L. Turabian first put her famous guidelines to paper, she could hardly have imagined the world in which today’s students would be conducting research. Yet while the ways in which we research and compose papers may have changed, the fundamentals remain the same: writers need to have a strong research question, construct an evidence-based argument, cite their sources, and structure their work in a logical way. <i>A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations</i>—also known as “Turabian”—remains one of the most popular books for writers because of its timeless focus on achieving these goals.<br /><br /><br /><br />This new edition filters decades of expertise into modern standards. While previous editions incorporated digital forms of research and writing, this edition goes even further to build information literacy, recognizing that most students will be doing their work largely or entirely online and on screens. Chapters include updated advice on finding, evaluating, and citing a wide range of digital sources and also recognize the evolving use of software for citation management, graphics, and paper format and submission. The ninth edition is fully aligned with the recently released <i>Chicago Manual of Style</i>, 17th edition, as well as with the latest edition of <i>The Craft of Research.</i><br /><br /><br /><br />Teachers and users of the previous editions will recognize the familiar three-part structure. Part 1 covers every step of the research and writing process, including drafting and revising. Part 2 offers a comprehensive guide to Chicago’s two methods of source citation: notes-bibliography and author-date. Part 3 gets into matters of editorial style and the correct way to present quotations and visual material. <i> A Manual for Writers</i> also covers an issue familiar to writers of all levels: how to conquer the fear of tackling a major writing project.<br /><br /><br /><br />Through eight decades and millions of copies, <i>A Manual for Writers</i> has helped generations shape their ideas into compelling research papers. This new edition will continue to be the gold standard for college and graduate students in virtually all academic disciplines.<br /><br /> </div>

<i>“We think of English as a fortress to be defended, but a better analogy is to think of English as a child. We love and nurture it into being, and once it gains gross motor skills, it starts going exactly where we don’t want it to go: it heads right for the goddamned electrical sockets.”</i><br /> <i> </i><br /> With wit and irreverence, lexicographer Kory Stamper cracks open the obsessive world of dictionary writing, from the agonizing decisions about what to define and how to do it to the knotty questions of ever-changing word usage. <br />  <br /> Filled with fun facts—for example, the first documented usage of “OMG” was in a letter to Winston Churchill—and Stamper’s own stories from the linguistic front lines (including how she became America’s foremost “irregardless” apologist, despite loathing the word), <i>Word by Word</i> is an endlessly entertaining look at the wonderful complexities and eccentricities of the English language.
