Grammar To Go: the Portable A-zed Guide To Canadian Usage

Grammar To Go: the Portable A-zed Guide To Canadian Usage Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This convenient, portable guide provides straightforward solutions to the most common problems of Canadian English grammar and usage. Fully revised and expanded, this new edition of Rob Colter's bestseller contains four sections: Grammar and Style, Punctuation, Spelling, and Common Confusions. Within each section the entries are alphabetically arranged for easy reference. This is not a grammar book in the conventional sense of that dreaded word: grammar knowledge is not needed to find answers, and the wealth of explanations and examples make it easy to understand and use once they're found. If, for example, you want to know (once and for all) the difference between "it's" and "its," you don't need to know the relevant parts of speech. Simply look under the heading "It's/Its." This edition adds sections on source documentation, email, inclusive language, parallelism, ambiguity, and language simplification. The result is an indispensable grammar guide that belongs in every backpack, briefcase, or handbag.
