E-Prime engenders controversy, both in and outside of general semantics, the discipline from which it emerged.
It seems simple enough. Just stop using all forms of the verb "to be." The results can astonish you: from clearer thinking and improved writing to a change in epistemology that can enhance your functioning in the world.
This second collection of E-Prime writing contains original articles, reprints from ETC’s E-Prime Symposia, and original fiction.
It does not attempt to decide the merits of E-Prime. It does continue the general semantics tradition of investigating the potentials of purposive linguistic revision by focusing on the particular methodology of E-Prime.
