Riassunto:

This book shows writers age 15 and up how to identify and fix fragments, comma splices, run-ons, commas, apostrophes, and other common mistakes using a logical, step-by-step method that always works. Writing correctly is like driving; it s a necessary skill that most people need to learn. But you don't need to rebuild a transmission to be a safe and capable driver. And you don't need to know the difference between a direct object and an indirect object in order to write correctly and well. This book is different from other grammar books in two important ways. First, it starts with vital information and moves toward the less important information. Students can start at the beginning and go as far as they wish. Those who just want to fix their comma mistakes can stop after chapter 4. Those who want to learn more can continue through chapter 10 which covers the intricacies of traditional grammar which are rarely studied anymore, even by college English majors. The second difference is that this book is based on a logical, step-by-step process for analyzing and fixing sentence mistakes. Students who have a natural gift for writing will learn the reasons why the comma goes here not there, and students who are more mathematically inclined can understand grammar at last. This book is very user-friendly with extensive cross-referencing throughout, a detailed Table of Contents and Index, and a Quick Reference Page at the end. The language is comfortable for students and the example sentences are light-hearted for a fun reading experience.

L'autore: Marian Anders has taught English literature, grammar, and composition to college students for the past twenty years. She developed her practical grammar teaching method to make English easier and less miserable for her students. She served as English department chair at Pierce College in Puyallup, Washington, and currently teaches at St. Augustine s College in Raleigh, NC.
