Description - Things Your Grammar Never Told You by Maurice Scharton

This pocket-size handbook is sophisticated, distinguished by its witty and irreverent tone and by the simplicity of its explanations. Explanations are clear and quickly usable; and often intimidating topics are treated in a light, sometimes offbeat, and non-threatening manner. Things Your Grammar Never Told You is designed to delight and instruct, to attract students with its humor, and to support teachers with its essential editing advice. Browsing throughout the book, students find clear explanations laced with wit and illustrated with funny examples that model good editing and writing practices. Using the book to edit papers, students find tips on using their computers to turn advice into action. Experienced writers find advanced stylistic precepts and a wealth of examples to support their growth as writers throughout their college years.It will serve situations in which instructors want a handbook that students will consult independently, and that will encourage students to edit autonomously. Students will return again and again to this handbook for its good advice and wry humor.
