About a generation ago, public schools in the United States essentially stopped formal instruction in English grammar. The fallout from that decision is now among us. Many working professionals, college graduates, and even journalists, professors, and editors lack a basic understanding of the fundamental rules of grammar and the ability to manipulate the English language adequately and with grace. The practical results of this decline are evidenced in an avalanche of illiterate and clumsy writing: misspelled e-mails, business letters padded with corporate speak, inflated advertising copy, even leaden dialog in dramatic presentations, to say nothing of the reams of inept and substandard writing spawned by students at all levels, in term papers, essays, theses, and examinations. To the rescue of all these unfortunates, writers and readers, comes English Grammar for the Utterly Confused, a user-friendly, colloquial, expert guide to the structures of English grammar and how to use them easily and proficiently. This is the book that will demystify grammar, giving readers a lucid, clearly focused view of the language and how it works, leading them in natural, organic ways to developing their familiarity and facility with grammar, easing the path to correct writing and speech. Courses: Almost all two- and four-year colleges and universities in the United States require a first-year course in English writing or composition. Courses are also given in Adult Education at high schools and in classes for new citizens and immigrants.
