Praise for Nitty-Gritty Grammar: A Not-So-Serious Guide to Clear Communication…


Grammar, like love, is a perpetual mystery, and books on how to do either better are eternal. In NITTY-GRITTY GRAMMAR, Edith H. Fine and Judith P. Josephson attack the homonyms and dangling modifiers that? which? frequently plague even native speakers, and even delve into the fine points of diagramming. -Publishers Weekly
