Paperback, 209 pages.
This handy little grammar and style guide covers the common errors writers make in punctuation, grammar and usage. The book begins with grammar basics: parts of speech, elements of a sentence, verbs and pronouns. The second section of the book covers grammatical guidelines, punctuation and copyediting. The third section covers the craft of writing, word usage and style considerations. The final section of the book includes a glossary, a list of commonly misspelled words, lists of additional resources and website links. Humorous quotes and illustrations are included throughout the book, which help prevent the book from becoming just another dull grammar reference. Write Right! is a convenient grammar handbook that will take up little space on your work desk, but will provide a great amount of value.
