The Spectator

Here's a little article that I wrote for The Spectator. So you get a thousand words instead of the usual measly hundred.

I'm off touring around Britain this week. If you would like to come along, the new dates are:

Barter Books in Alnwick today
The Edinburgh Bookshop on 26th of November
Rossiter Books in Ross-on-Wye on the 27th of November
Booka Bookshop in Oswestry on 28th of November
Winstones of Sherborne on 4th of December
Waterstones Piccadilly on 5th of December (no talk, just signing and mulled wine)
Blackwells Oxford on 9th of December
Steyning Bookshop in West Sussex on 10th of December
Warwick Books on 11th of December
The Idler Academy in West London on 12th of December.

  1. Mark. After reading your article in the Spectator, I posted to my own blog (Translating technical journalism at, on 2 December, under the heading 'Answer to a long-standing question'. Today, I posted again under the heading 'Applying OSASCOMPN to military terms'. Turns out that I had trouble applying the rule. If you could spare a few minutes to take a look and clarify, I would be very grateful indeed.
