Description

This clear, concise, and inexpensive pocket guide offers a quick and easy reference for anyone needing extra help with grammar, punctuation, mechanics, and either traditional or online research. The Writer's FAQ is built around the typical questions writers have -- helping them find the information they're looking for even if they don't know the terminology. Dozens of hint boxes offer useful advice, strategies for understanding rules, and suggestions for avoiding common error. An extensive section on online research helps writers make better use of search engines, evaluate the quality of online sources, and document the sources they use. A separate multilingual speaker's section offers in-depth coverage of specific grammar issues faced by non-native speakers. For everyone who wishes to become a more effective writer.show more
