    1. This is a book about English grammar. Need I say more?Well this is to I suppose that I maybe should. The title is a slightly misleading, this book is not exactly a grammar book in that it teaches about punctuation, sentence structure, and so forth, this is a text concerns with the fundamentals of the English language which involves clause types, phrase types, and sentence components.
