Essentials of English Grammar is a concise guide to the basic rules of English grammar, usage, and style. It is designed to serve as a handy reference both to people who have only an occasional language question and to people who are developing the use of English as another language. It offers quick and convenient guidance to the fundamentals of the English language.
Essentials of English Grammar is arranged into two main parts. Part I, “Essentials of Grammar,” covers the fundamental rules and exceptions for parts of speech, punctuation, sentence construction and patterns, capitalization, abbreviations, numbers, spelling, and word division. Part II, “Style Considerations,” includes guidance on writing and combining sentences, brevity, clarity, accuracy, and gender-inclusive language. The appendixes offer additional resource materials.
