Early in the history of English, the words "grammar" and "glamour" meant the same thing: the power to charm. Roy Peter Clark, author ofWriting Toolsand the forthcomingHelp! For Writers,aims to put the glamour back in grammar with this fun, engaging alternative to stuffy instructionals. Now in paperback, this widely praised practical guide demonstrates everything from the different parts of speech to why effective writers prefer concrete nouns and active verbs. Above all, Clark teaches readers how to master grammar to perfect their use of English, to instill meaning, and to charm through their writing. In a world where we comminucate more and more through emails and text messages, how you use language matters--even in 140 characters.The Glamour of Grammarprepares readers to captivate with every word.
