Like its predecessors, this new edition of English Fundamentalsoffers a solid treatment of grammar that has proven successful for thousands of developing writers. Beginning with the basic elements of the sentence, the book presents each topic with clear, detailed explanations and numerous exercises. The first lessons introduce the basic system of the language and provide carefully chosen examples of verb connections, basic sentence patterns, and the internal workings of the sentence. Once the foundation is laid, subsequent lessons explore the more complex structures and relationships of the language. The final instructional section surveys college writing; readers study the writing process, with special emphasis on techniques of invention, and then learn to apply the process to a wide range of writing assignments. The section closes with coverage of essay tests and test-taking. The examples and exercises throughout the book come from a number of disciplines, including science and business, to accommodate the interests of a wide range of readers. The text concludes with a set of twenty progress tests and three appendixes: sentence-combining, diagnostic tests, and an answer key to the Practice Sheets. For those interested in developing their grammar skills.
