An examination of the rules behind English grammar, focusing on the most common mistakes made by writers--including dangling participles, run-on sentences, and misused words--and how to fix them.
Part of the Understanding Grammar series
The principles of grammar can seem intimidating; is it even possible to grasp—and use—all those rules anyway? It is with the help of Understanding Grammar. Plentiful tables, memory aids, and example excerpts from literature and real-life situations supplement each tightly constructed text and contribute to the author’s decidedly down-to-earth approach in explaining the basics of English grammar. Colorful photos add to the books’ appeal, while chapter-ending activities encourage readers to put new knowledge into practice.
