Making Sense

The Glamorous Story of English Grammar

David Crystal

  • An engaging and light read written by a preeminent scholar of the English language
  • Explores how grammar has responded and adapted to the 21st century digital environment of blogging, emailing, texting
  • Offers practical guidance for how grammar may be used for one's personal benefit
  • Eradicates a centuries-old bias against grammar and its seeming uselessness, and argues how it can be taught differently and engagingly
