Oxford A-Z of Grammar and Punctuation

0bffb16d-5c9d-4610-9b63-0cbc74d77f86

Here we have a grammar book, written in clear simple language, that gives you a straightforward and easy to understand guide to the subject.  Starting with a brief explanation of the grammatical structure of sentences and paragraphs it goes on to an alphabetical listing of all the grammatical terms you are ever likely to meet, showing the role they play in your writing. In the process, it discusses related questions of usage showing, for example, the differences between ‘may’ or ‘might’ and ‘that’ or ‘which’.

The whole thing presents a working guide to grammar, showing how it all comes together in practice, rather than being a textbook that expounds the theory. It is the kind of book that you can keep on your desk to refer to as you are writing.

Punctuation is a part of the book’s alphabetical structure so that for example, ‘semi colon’ is there under s, and its entry provides a clear summary of how and when to use it.
