Everyday Grammar - A Guide to Good Usage is a unique English language textbook, perfect for beginners to the subject and for those looking for a slightly different approach. This book is the result of several years of classroom instruction spent teaching college students the fundamentals of correct English use. The rules stated in this text are the record of student reaction and suggestion to the standard rules of accepted use, and an attempt has been made to state the rules clearly, concisely, consistently, and in keeping with good taste. The chapters of this book include: The Period, The Comma, The Semicolon, The colon, The Exclamation Point, The Question Mark, Parenthesis, Brackets, The Apostrophe, The Hyphen, Quotation Marks, et cetera. We are proud to republish this scarce antiquarian text complete with a new introduction to the subject.
