KEY TOPICS: Building on what readers already know intuitively about English, it is the first book to combine traditional and generative approaches in one practical synthesis showing readers how to notice patterns in their language, how to describe those patterns in clear and principled ways, how to decide which of their descriptions are best, and how to represent their decisions in the form of rules and diagrams. It helps readers understand and resolve well-known usage problems subject-verb agreement, sexism in language, dangling modifiers, and others by description of their grammar and features humorous examples throughout including quotations from authors such as Homer, Malcolm X, Jane Austen, Henry James, and Toni Morrison.
