Third Edition

John Seely

  • Provides the information about grammar and punctuation that people need on a day-to-day basis
  • Accessible two-colour design and diagrams with related terms makes it simple to use

  • The two-colour format of early editions has been reintroduced, increasing the ease of navigation
  • Sample sentences have been fully revised, replacing those that were out of date, simplifying where possible, and adding new ones where needed
  • The introduction has been revised to introduce the concepts of grammatical form and grammatical function, and how they are distinguished
