Sleeping Dogs Don't Lay: Practical Advice for the Grammatically Challenged : Lederer has teamed up with Richard Dowis to take readers on another journey through the world's most wonderful, albeit perplexing, language. How many times have we all heard the word viable used in company meetings? Lederer and Dowis show us how "viable," somewhere along the line, was extracted from medical books, where it literally means "capable of living," and placed into the business lexicon, where it means ... well, who knows?. The authors clear up once and for all the confusion between lay and lie and put to rest some common myths about language.
