Eats, Shoots & Leaves for the internet age

As language evolves faster than ever before, what is the future of 'correct' writing? When Emmy Favilla was tasked with creating a styleguide for BuzzFeed, she opted for spelling, grammar and punctuation guidelines that would reflect how readers actually use language IRL.

With wry humour and an uncanny intuition for the possibilities of internet-age expression, Favilla makes a case for breaking the stuffy rules that have hitherto defined our relationship with language. Featuring priceless emoji strings, sidebars, quizzes and style debates among the most lovable word nerds of the digital media world – of which Favilla is the go-to style guru – A World Without "Whom†? is essential for readers and writers of posts, tweets, texts, emails and whatever comes next.
