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.

The Essentials of English includes eight parts, an answer key, and an index:
  • The Basics
