English usage & American English - English, grammar, style, rules, usage. A practical and authoritative guide to contemporary English: With a detailed look at grammar, style, diction, word formation, gender, social groups and scientific forms, this valuable reference work is ideal for students, writers, academicians and anybody concerned about proper writing style.
The plan for the second edition of the classic reference work The King's English was dictated by the following considerations: (1) to pass by all rules, of whatever absolute importance, that are shown by observation to be seldom or never broken; and (2) to illustrate by living examples, with the name of a reputable authority attached to each, all blunders that observation shows to be common.
Asserting that one must first know the rules to break them, this classic reference book is a must-have for any student and conscientious writer. Intended for use in which the practice of composition is combined with the study of literature, it gives in brief space the principal requirements of plain English style and concentrates attention on the rules of usage and principles of composition most commonly violated.
This classic was written to clarify the discrepancies between British and American English and to define the distinguishing characteristics of American English. Mencken's groundbreaking study was undoubtedly the most scientific linguistic work on the American language to date and continues to serve as a definitive resource in the field.

Encyclopedia of the Orient EN>EN Orient, Middle East, North Africa, politics, rulers, kings, maps, religion, peoples. Maps, searching, open text search, article in one neat site. "The Encyclopaedia of the Orient is a one-stop online resource which covers all countries and cultures between Mauritania in the west and Iran in the east, Turkey in the north and Sudan in south. The Encyclopaedia contains original material, what you read here is written for this publication, only. The content is updated on a weekly basis, and as long as the world does not change to quickly for our small staff, you will always find the freshest information here. The Encyclopaedia of the Orient has articles, which aim at both the high school- level and university- level student, who needs a good resource of reference material. It will therefore never be the most comprehensive on all subjects, but it will hopefully be able to help anyone to find just the right information he or she needs within few minutes. North Africa and the Middle East are still far too unfairly treated in the world press. This might not be a problem for an audience who knows the region well already, but all too many get little information on this region beyond the media image of wars and poverty."

Bookworm search - literature, literary, characters, books, plot points. [From the Researchbuzz newsletter] "Wow, what an engine. Allreaders
( http://www.allreaders.com ) allows you to search for book information through several different elements, including plot, main character, main adversary, plotelements, etc. The site divides the books into several genres (literature, sci-fi, romance, etc.). The site covers several authors but it's not comprehensive. You can list the authors in each author or go straight to the search form. The search form for the detailed search asks a number of questions about a book, including plot points, etc. When you use the detailed
search form, a lot of your choices will cause the page to reload. Don't worry about that. For example, you may choose an "animal story" plot point. Once you've chosen that, the page will reload and give you more options (in this case, you'll be able to specify what kind of animal.) You can answer as many or as few questions as you like in the detailed search. The search results page will give you book name, author name, and number of matches. Click on a book name and you'll be taken to the book summary pages. The summary pages contain book review summaries, and summary details (basically information about the book presented in the same way as the detailed search form requests it.) The elements that match your search are highlighted. At the bottom of the page are the top ten books in the AllReaders search engine that match the summarized book's characteristics. I was tickled to see that Atlas Shrugged was such a close match to Alice in Wonderland. Who knew? The detailed search form will seem overwhelming at first, but it's worth the time to play with it and see what you can get out of it. Maybe some new reading recommendations. Worth a look."
