Wherever you are, whatever the company, proper English will always stand you in good stead. However, the world's most important language does have a number of difficult areas and pitfalls for the unwary. Fortunately, "Her Ladyship" is here to help you avoid them--and teach you how to pronounce "schedule" the English way and find the right synonym for "toilet" when you're chatting to bishops and barons. She covers: common mistakes in grammar (which will belie a lowly upbringing), typical misspellings, frequently misused words, and the all-important choice of phrases to use in posh society . . . with a guide to pronouncing them correctly.
