It is the author's intention to treat writing as an extension of one' speech; to speak correctly is the key to learning to write and use grammar correctly. Grammar in the native speaker is a built-in skill, rather than an added on one and the best sense for grammar is in the ear. They suggest that there are not errors of bad grammar; instead, there are errors of inappropriate usage. The book offers full coverage of the writing process, the patterns of paragraph development, sentence grammar, and mechanics and usage. Abundant contextual exercises, writing examples and careful explanations of grammar rules appear throughout the book. For any one looking to refresh their fundamental grammar skills or in need of a book to serve as a primary reference.Winkler, Anthony C. is the author of 'Writing Talk Sentences & Paragraphs With Readings', published 2005 under ISBN 9780131523616 and ISBN 0131523619.
