From the Back Cover:

From grammar and punctuation to the creation of essays and business letters, The Essentials of English: A Writer's Handbook is a must-have reference tool for today's writer. As easy to use as a dictionary, this handbook is designed specifically for non-native English speakers:

  • Pays extra attention to articles, phrasal verbs, subordinate clauses, and other commonly troublesome items.
  • Uses everyday language and simple sentence structure in both explanations and examples.
  • Examples reflect topics of multicultural interest.
  • Includes reference lists especially helpful to non-native speakers.
Each part focuses on a single topic, building from sentence structure and mechanics to writing, revising, and proper formatting. Students also learn how to write a research paper in the MLA and APA styles. Practice exercises provide immediate application, and "Special Tips" throughout indicate common errors, explain confusing points, and offer helpful hints. The Essentials of English includes eight parts, an answer key, and an index:
  • The Basics
  • Clear Sentences
  • Grammar
  • Punctuation
  • Mechanics
  • Writing and Revising
  • Formats
  • Research Papers
  • Reference Lists
Exercises to Accompany The Essentials of English provides additional practice related to the writing process, sentence structure, grammar, pronunciation, and more.
