Grammar Geek, Hardback Book

Grammar Geek Hardback

Hardback

Description

English is full of beauty and surprises, yet despite being the lingua franca of the globalization world, it has a reputation for being difficult to learn because its grammar has also so many quirks and contradictions. Did you know:- "Terry loves yogurt" is an example of illeism- preposition stranding is a bogus rule- sometimes it's acceptable to begin a sentence with "but" or "and"- "Could you pass the salt?" is "whimperative"- it's OK to boldly split infinitives Many of us don't even know the basics, so not only does Grammar Geek reveal obscure grammar rules and bogus ones you can safely ignore, it's also a handy primer, so in the future you'll have no excuse for dangling a modifier or misplacing a semicolon.
