You Can Say That Again is Bruce Rogers' light-hearted look at the the English language. It examines the origins, history, and peculiarities of the language, and provides instruction on how to speak effectively. It sets the record straight on how to pronounce some of the most troublesome words and names. It examines the standards of the electronic media and finds them wanting. And it offers tips on preparation and presentation for platform speakers and broadcasters.

You Can Say That Again has a language quiz in every chapter, along with lists of origins, political and business terms, sports and science bloopers, puns, limericks, and euphemisms. There's a pronunciation guide for major languages. And there is help for those who want to join the battle against jargon, slang, and cliches.

Vocal confidence is essential for personal success. You Can Say That Again can help you sound better when you open your mouth to speak.
