The most powerful and the most perfect expression of thought and feeling through the
medium of oral language must be traced to the mastery of words. Nothing is better suited to
lead speakers and readers of English into an easy control of this language than the command
of the phrase that perfectly expresses the thought. Every speaker‟s aim is to be heard and
understood. A clear, crisp articulation holds an audience as by the spell of some irresistible

In November of 2000, The Wall Street Journal asked me to write
an opinion piece on Jack Welch’s choice of a successor. The essay,
entitled Welch’s Successor is likely to Succeed, included the following
proclamation: “Welch has done more to advance the body of
knowledge than any of his contemporaries. He created a new business
lexicon.” This statement planted the seed for this book...that
the very words, terms, and phrases used most often by Jack
Welch, 250 in all, could become the basis for a management book....

Serving customers. The two words cover so much. Answering
questions. Solving problems. Untangling corporate logjams. Fixing
what's broken and finding what's lost. Soothing the irate and
reassuring the timid. And time after time, performing the business
equivalent of pulling a rabbit out of a hat: Matching people
who do business with you with just the right products, services,
In the work of abridgement, my first concern has been to preserve
a complete statement of the theory, since less thorough accounts are
readily available elsewhere. This has meant retaining most of Chap-
ters II, HI, and IV and parts of Chapters I and V. Even in Chapters II-
IV, however, I have not hesitated to cut footnotes, paragraphs, and
whole pages where the discussion seemed to go pretty far afield, as
well as deleting superfluous sentences and phrases.
We all want it - financial independence. There are a lot of vehicles that can get your there. One of the best is internet marketing. Many realize it. They make a go at it - yet don't succeed. Why?

Make Your Advertising Banners Attractive After all, they carry the message that will get people in. Be concise in your message (you have limited space, anyway). Use animation (two to three frames) to make the ad stand out. Use words that initiate action from the surfer (a phrase like "Click Here" can be very effective). Keep Your Advertisement Sizes Small The smaller the file size, the faster it loads. Not everyone has high-speed lines. Try and keep advertisement banner sizes to less than 10 KB in size. Impressions v/s Clicks The number of impressions (people who see your ad) does...
Schumpeter's style ran not only to frequent digressions, which I
have tried to eliminate, but also to surplus words, to stating what is
already implied, to burdening the reader with phrases that distract his
attention. In such a sentence as, "It is surely not too much to ask
economists to realize that behavior in human societies differs from
behavior in animal societies or in physical systems" (p. 1046 of the
1939 edition), I have deleted the italicized words without using dots to
so indicate. Occasionally it was convenient to alter the punctuation.

Most important, this edition adds more than 500 new words and terms that
have come into common use since the previous edition was published. The addi-
tions are by no means comprehensive, but they include some of the most promi-
nent new locutions in a language that has grown increasingly rich. The Queen’s
English, often regarded as a paradigm of correct and "proper" usage, has been
busy absorbing words and phrases from diverse sources—some reflecting new
political alignments, some from overseas, many from the argot of the street. ...

The EPISTLE system is being developed in a research project for exploring the feasibility of a variety of intelligent applications for the processing of business and office text (!'Z; the authors of are the project workers). Although ultimately intended functions include text generation (e.g., 4), present efforts focus on text analysis: developing the capability to take in essentially unconstrained business text and to output grammar and style critiques, on a sentence by sentence basis.
Although ultimately intended functions include text generation (e.g., 4), present efforts focus on text analysis: developing the capability to take in essentially unconstrained business text and to output grammar and style critiques, on a sentence by sentence basis. Briefly, we use a large on-line dictionary and a bottom-up parser in connection with an Augmented Phrase Structure Grammar (5) to obtain an approximately correct structural description of the surface t e x t (e.g., we posit no transformations or recovery of deleted material to infer underlying "deep" structures). ...
