Description

What is a dangling modifier? When should you use 'that' and when should you use 'which'? When is a sentence not a sentence? Find the answers to these and many other questions about language and its use in the Australian Handbook for Writers and Editors. Whether you are a professional writing student, practising writer or editor, a student studying English or someone wanting to tighten your grasp on grammar, this book is a rich resource. It provides a comprehensive coverage of the principles of grammar and punctuation, and the practice of common usage by providing: clear definitions and explanations; examples of correct and incorrect use; practice exercises with answers; extension exercises; a review exercise at the end of each section; an editing checklist; a list of recommended references; a glossary of terms.
