In the present age of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) revolution and social networking scenario, fast and precise communication has become the need of the hour. But in the whirlwind of fluency, accuracy cannot be sacrificed. Sometimes, adequate attention is not paid to the use of grammar and usage, which leaves a very bad impression on the readers. This book on English grammar presents the topics in an innovative way and meets the long-felt need of a good user-friendly grammar book.
The book makes the study of grammar very interesting, challenging and exciting. It discusses grammatical categories, processes and principles of sentence construction in a very simple and lucid manner. The book starts with the discussion of word classes and goes on to describe phrases and sentences. More importantly, it deals with the problem areas of tenses, modal verbs, articles, determiners, prepositions, passive constructions and direct and indirect narration in a novel way. The composition section of the book includes a very useful presentation of letter-writing, precis-writing, report writing, reading comprehension and, above all, the use of vocabulary. The Appendices on how to avoid spelling errors and a complete list of the types of sentences are very useful.
This comprehensive and well-researched book should prove very valuable for undergraduate students of all streams. Besides, professionals, those preparing for competitive examinations and even any lay reader who wishes to possess the essentials of English grammar and usage will find the book useful and interesting.
