The Longman Writer's Companion, Second Edition, explores the connection between reading and writing, helping students develop an intuitive understanding of grammar conventions and encouraging them to adjust their writing style to meet the needs of varying audiences. This brief text emphasizes the reader-writer connection in two key ways. The "Read, Recognize, Revise" approach to editing grammar and style encourages students to utilize their own experience as readers to help them spot critical errors in their writing and to apply specific strategies from the text to correct them. In addition, the text highlights the expectations of various communities of writers and readers; emphasizing the academic community, it also includes unique coverage of the public and workplace communities. It outlines the kinds of writing students can expect to find in each community, and offers guided advice on how best to write within the context of the community they are addressing. New material on oral presentations and online communication ensures that students are prepared to compose in contexts in and out of the classroom.A dynamic, comb-bound, tabbed handbook, The Longman Writer's Companion allows students to quickly and easily reference the information they need and apply it to the papers they write.
