Overview


High school and college students will find Write On! a valuable grammar reference, as well as a solid, sensible style manual to guide them in writing essays and term papers. The book opens with advice on how to avoid unnecessary use of that all-too-common cause of limp sentences--the passive voice. The following chapter cautions on misuse of pronouns and irregular verbs, and shows how to use them properly. Chapters that follow clarify correct use of parts of speech as they apply to every segment of written prose, from the briefest phrase to a full-length book. Later chapters deal with punctuation and frequently misused words, and advise on selecting topics to write about. A final chapter discusses ways to use figurative language -- similes, metaphors, symbolism, and other devices that transform mundane prose into pleasurable reading. Although written primarily for senior high school and beginning college students, Write On! also makes a fine desk companion for anybody who writes, including professionals. The book includes exercises, a writing test, and a vocabulary-builder appendix.
