Those pesky dangling modifiers, split infinitives, and comma splices­­they infect our spoken and written language with such frequency that even native English speakers find it difficult to determine what's right and what's wrong!

The McGraw-Hill Handbook of English Grammar and Usage shows you how to fix these everyday English language mistakes. With commonsense, easy-to-remember usage tips throughout, this handbook features incorrect and correct grammatical examples, a short review of basic grammar, a glossary, and more.

From the Back Cover:

Who or Whom? Its or It's? Lie or Lay?

Confused over which to use? Can't remember those grueling grammar lessons from junior high? Worried that your writing lacks professional polish? Stop worrying! You've just picked up the painless prescription for proper English.

Acclaimed grammarians Mark Lester and Larry Beason know that English teachers aren't the only ones who expect careful and correct language choices. Precision in language can be the deciding factor when it comes to getting jobs and winning promotions. In The McGraw-Hill Handbook of English Grammar and Usage, they won't bog you down in musty grammarian phraseology. Instead, you'll get bottom-line definitions, hints, and simple rules that summarize the least you need to know about grammar and usage.

With their entertaining style and practical approach, the authors guide you through:

  • Understanding common mistakes and why they happen
  • Hundreds of correct and incorrect sentence examples, with errors clearly marked
  • Quick tips for fixing your most stubborn grammatical mishaps
  • Catchy memory aids for writing correctly the first time
  • PLUS: A handy glossary

Whether your skills need drastic improvement or a quick brush-up, this book will get your grammar back on the right track.
