WHAT YOU’LL FIND IN THIS BOOK
Don’t be afraid. English grammar can appear daunting, but once you start to get inside it, you find that you absorb the rules quite naturally. We’ve taken the essentials and broken them down into easy-to-understand segments. Most of the grammar rules appear in the first half of the book.
In Part I, “Grappling with Grammar,” we cover the definition, logic, and nuances of grammar and show you exactly what makes up the basic parts of a sentence.
Part II, “Getting Grounded in Grammar,” explains the elementary sentence components—nouns, gerunds, pronouns, verbs, articles, adjectives, adverbs, phrases, clauses—and most forms of punctuation.
By Part III, “Setting Your Style,” you’ll be ready to apply the rules you’ve learned. We’ll show you the steps to add the necessary flair and finesse to take the written and spoken word beyond the mundane and into the realm of efficiency and effectiveness.
Finally, in Part IV, “Putting Your Style into Practice,” you’re ready to do just that. You’ll learn how to come up with and develop ideas, adapt presentations to fit your audience, handle the standard forms of business correspondence, and overcome problem words and expressions.
We wrap up with the appendixes, which provide you with a glossary to verify word and term definitions plus additional (and sometimes alternative) information on the books and other resources you’ve encountered in “Biblio File” notes throughout the book. Rome may not have been built in a day, but your better understanding of grammar and style will be—one hour at a time.
