Author's note

How I wish this page didn't exist. To my proofreaders (paid and unpaid), I thank you that there are not more errors in this very demanding text, and I take full responsibility for the few that crept through (and particularly the 'clanger' I added at the last minute).

To anyone out there who has found an error that isn't listed here, please do notify us at info[at]nakedize.com. The same goes for queries or suggested improvements.

Needless to say, these six errors will be corrected in the next edition of the book.

14 ...by wisely choosing which words you choose. ...by wisely choosing your words. How awful and ironic! A last-minute change for the worse.
29 PUNCTATION PUNCTUATION This misspelling made it past everyone and, we later discovered, had actually gone unnoticed in the original seminar booklet for years. If you're wondering about the spell-checker, it turns out that punctation is a word ('the marking or indentation of a puncture').
43 In turn, the en-dash's functions (as listed overleaf) are carried out by the hyphen.   Somehow I managed to get my en-dashes and hyphens muddled in relation to British versus American English. They are distinct in both variants and this sentence should be deleted.
44 (the hyphen in British English)   As above, this parenthetical phrase is wrong so put a line through it.
Bibliography 1979 1997 Incorrect publication date of the Painless Grammar book.
