Bryan Garner is the world's leading expert on legal writing and legal lexicography. He is the editor of Black's Law Dictionary and the author of many leading books, such as The Elements of Legal Style and Garner's Dictionary of Legal Usage.
Through the Oxford University Press, Garner publishes a daily email with a usage tip of the day, drawn from his book, Garner's Modern American Usage. The daily tip also includes a quote of the day about writing or lexicography.
Garner's email today discusses the word "remorelessly," a word that is not commonly seen in legal writing. But it's still good to know how to use the word correctly. Because of useful tips like this, I find it very worthwhile to receive Garner's daily email. It's a painless way to work your way slowly through Garner's dictionary.
