The opening chapter of the booklet checks what is the English language for transport and logistics while the second chapter s dedicated to the knots and how to tie them properly.

Moreover, there are chapters on the weather prediction tools, meteorology, intermodal freight transport, oil tankers, handling of goods and passengers, safety regulations, safety signs and legislation, and so many other aspects of transportation (note, however, that the terminology dealt with in the book is not limited to sea transportation).

If I Was You... And A Lot More Grammar Mistakes You Might Be Making

   Every time we start to write something, we’re setting off on an unknown journey across that big blank computer screen or piece of paper. We usually have a pretty good idea of where we are and where we want to get to. It’s the part in between that can be scary. This is where knowing the basic rules of English grammar and spelling helps. The rules are like signposts at key junctions telling you which way to turn. They help keep you from getting lost and confused amid the strange jungle that is the English language. That’s why you’re holding this book. You don’t need an exhaustive compilation of all the rules and regulations of our mother tongue. Instead, you want something that’s concise and practical—a kind of pocket atlas you can pull out and consult when you feel you’ve lost your way. Each of the entries in this book starts with a common mistake. We discuss why the sample sentence is wrong, what point of grammar it illustrates, and how to fix it. Don’t worry if a lot of these mistakes sound familiar to you. We’re here to help you get your grammar in order and clean up any errors. In the end, you’ll have a nice, clear, well-lit, well-signed road in front of you. You can read the book from beginning to end, but it may be more helpful if you use the index to look up the specific problems about which you have questions. For further information, we’ve also included a list of resources. So open your atlas, turn on your GPS, and let’s set out on our journey. Everything’s going to be all right now!

For example, many people may be surprised to find out that at sea a sheet is made of rope and not cloth.

This comprehensive dictionary includes more than 14000 sailing terms. This latest edition of the dictionary will be equally useful for yachting enthusiasts, fans of nautical fiction, naval history buffs and all people who like the sea.

Without any doubt, we can recommend this book to anyone - it will enrich the vocabulary of marine industry professionals, and even will be interesting even to the general readers who may find there the descriptions of the terms that they may meet when reading nautical works or other related books.

The Seafaring Dictionary

   The initial declared purpose of the present publication was to bring together a whole range of nautical info. In fact, such amount of information would require a separate library. The book is a mixture of factual technical information and lexicology, together with wild superstition - it covers not only what seamen say, but also what they believe and think, and how seafarers describe their equipment; it shows what laws and traditions determine how the seamen do their job. We all know that navigable waters cover more than seventy of the Earth's surface and, until last century, world's oceans were the only possible option for any intercontinental travel. Even today, when airlines are taking over passenger traffic, the vessels still carry almost whole world's trade, which is rapidly expanding trade. That is why it is not that surprising that a huge part of the history has been written on the oceans; you must have already noted that so many words used nowadays, have nautical origins. Though most of them are English words, centuries ago they might be French words. This book is the compendium of nearly nine thousand terms taken from different sources of maritime terminology. Some of the entries are brief, but others have been supplemented with additional information.

The Engineering Language - A Consolidation of the Words and Their Definitions

   Ronald Hanifan, who is the author of the present publication, made his best trying to provide as many as possible common words as well as terminology used throughout the engineering community together with their definitions. These words are commonly approved and recognized definitions extracted from appropriate sources such as specifications, standards, handbooks, and consolidated into single volume. Please note that it is critically important to have a clear understanding of the definitions being in use use in engineering because often terms, words and their meanings get misapplied or intermixed. Many of them are used in various engineering documents, drawings, communications, contracts, technical orders, technical manuals, specifications and purchase orders, as well as all numerous documents relating to the engineering field. As these words form some kind of legal agreement, when there are used improperly, this may easily result in repercussions. Notes on engineering documents, such as drawings, must be written in concise and short statements with shortest words and phrases to convey the intended meaning. When words or terms are used properly, the intended meaning will be fully and properly understood by the reader. But, should the words or terms be applied incorrectly, this may be disastrous.

Writing with Power - Techniques for Mastering the Writing Process

   When I wrote the first edition of this book, I wanted to cram a lot into it. Cookbook became my metaphor: a collection of everything I could think of that was useful and tasty—and set out in self-contained chapters that readers could use in any sequence they want. But now, I see certain coherences I didn't see then. I see first what commentators also noticed most: my so-called "romantic" approach, that is, my emphasis on freewriting, chaos, not planning, mystery, magic, and the intangible. I am still singing this tune. "Just write, trust, don't ask too many questions, go with it. Put your effort into experiencing the tree you want to describe, not on thinking about which words to use. Don't put your attention on quality or critics. Just write." This is the je ne sais quoi dimension of writing. I always want to talk about what cannot quite be analyzed: the sense of voice in writing, the sense of a writer's presence on the page, the quality that makes a reader actually see or experience what you are saying. That is why I use so much indirection and metaphor. I have designed this book so you can either read it straight through or else skip around. That is, I have arranged it in what seems to me the most logical order; you will find some cumulative benefits from reading it in the normal sequence. But I have also made each section and chapter fairly complete in itself so you can thread your own path and find the chapters you need for your particular writing tasks or for your own particular temperament or skills. By reading Section I and the short introductions to the remaining five sections, you will get a good sense of how the whole book works. In addition, almost every chapter ends with a short summary or section of advice which you can consult for more information about what the chapter treats.

Spoken English - A Self-Learning Guide to Conversation Practice

   A course in spoken English language may be presented in either "what to say" or "how to say" form. As a rule, the first of the forms usually focuses on English conversation and teaches how to ask questions, get things done, make requests, express greetings, apologies, farewells, thanks, etc. And the "how to say" form of course deals mostly with English pronunciation and aims to teach the reader the proper pronunciation of English words, phrases and sentences. Most of the books on spoken English belong to one or the other of these two kinds. This publication, however, deals with spoken English language in both aspects at the same time. This book consists of twenty units, with each of them beginning with a conversation or dialogue - they are to be read carefully by the students before proceeding to the main material of the unit. In fact, this publication is mainly addressed to the students of English who are familiar with the general structure of this language but experience difficulties with communication, and speaking in particular. No other pre-qualification is required. The aim of this volume is to improve the pronunciation of the learners as well as their colloquial usage making it a bit easier for them to communicate effectively.

How to Talk Like a Local

   When I first told friends that I was embarking on a project collecting British dialect, their first thought was often that I would meet a lot of lonely people. I confess I feared they might be right. The speakers whose gems I was looking for were sure to be the last ones standing, bearers of vanishing vocabularies that would never be replaced. For the word 'dialect' has become synonymous with decline, just as English, we are told, is destined to become monolithic, bland, and peppered with universal lines absorbed from TV and Internet chat rooms. It has been one of the nicest surprises of my career to learn just how wrong we were. That English is far from losing its edge I already knew — its golden age may even lie ahead of us still — but I accepted without question that it was different for dialect. Like most people I know; I believed that our local vocabularies are being ironed out at the same electric pace as new words are being coined, and for a much bigger audience than a particular neighbourhood. That what we now have is a general lexicon from which everyone, north and south, young and old, draws for expression. What I've discovered in the course of writing this book is that dialect is alive, well, and kicking hard. It's just doing so in new and different ways. Of course, thousands of beautiful and unmistakably local words are dying out; many have already done so. They are just as surely to be missed as the new* are to be celebrated. For the most part they belonged to a world now lost to us — one populated with horse-drawn ploughs, dockers and cotton workers, collieries and tin-mines. The lexicons of these and other industries are still there if you look hard enough, but as the need for them diminishes, so do the aural snapshots of the life they once so brilliantly described. Yet, over the 1,500 years of English's history, it was ever thus — words have come and gone (and often come back again) throughout, but the footprints they leave remain as telline as ever...

English Business Letters

   We compiled this work on Business English having in mind the need of the students who have already mastered basic grammar, acquired a fair vocabulary with some idiom, and who now wish to apply his knowledge to the study of writing business letters in English. Therefore, we have given many examples of letters written in a clear, friendly, direct and positive style, keeping in mind needs of the students who require English for correspondence with English-speaking countries, and whose interest therefore lies mainly in import-export matters. In the present edition we have given 150 specimen letters as well as some 740 phrases and extracts from letters. No book of commercial correspondence could reproduce specimen letters in every style of expression used in commercial writing, but the carefully classified groups of phrases given will enable the student to build his own letters on the pattern of the specimens. Many of the letters have been presented in a very attractive and realistic style. Many of the letters presented in this release of the book in a realistic and attractive style, reflecting the latest revisions done by the authors to make it even more practical and useful when used as a guidance to writing business letters.

A Glossary of English Grammar

   Let us introduce a concise glossary of grammar terminology as well as expressions and words that are commonly used to describe the grammar.
