Grammar for Grown-ups




A comprehensive, informative but light-hearted guide to grammar for the twenty-first century - whether you who know a little bit, or nothing at all about good, plain, grammatical English, this is the only book you need.

Agitated about apostrophes?
Struggling with spelling?
Dithering over dangling participles?
Stumped by the subjunctive?

Relax. Help is at hand...

For native English speakers who realise that there is more to good
English than meets the eye, but don’t know where to start; for parents
struggling to explain the finer details to their kids; and for English-
language students everywhere . . . this is the only book you need.

Grammar for Grown-Ups guides you through the perils, pitfalls and
problematic aspects of the English language, with fun test-yourself
sections all the way.
