Product Description

This classic book has been relied upon by generation of writers as the manual for correct grammar and syntax. Beginning with the basic rules of usage, he covers when to add apostrophe "s" to a noun, parenthetic expressions, independent clauses and participial phrases before moving on to the principles of composition. Retaining all the language of the original edition, the advice on clarity and avoiding common errors remains just as in style today as it was in the past. 64 pages, softcover.

Publisher's Description

The original edition of the most trusted writer's guide to American English, this is the book that generations of writers have relied upon for timeless advice on grammar, diction, syntax, sentence construction, and other writing essentials. In brief and concise terms, author William Strunk, Jr., identifies the principal requirements of proper American English style and concentrates on the most often violated rules of composition.
Originally published in 1918, this authoritative and engagingly written manual retains its immediacy and relevance. Strunk begins with the basic rules of usage, offering accessible explanations of correct punctuation and grammar. His advice on the principles of composition cites concrete examples of how to maintain clarity by eliminating redundancy and unnecessary embellishment. In addition, Strunk provides valuable pointers on avoiding common errors in the usage of words and expressions, and in spelling. The greatest book of its kind, this volume is a must for any student or writer.
