The main arrangement of this book is alphabetical. This reference book provides a brief introduction to English grammar: for readers who have little or no background knowledge. Explained are the types of sentences, their components and patterns. For analyzing how sentences work there are a number of separate but related grammatical levels. Definition for word placement is also given with much more. Clear instruction in this one book with many examples, can enhance daily usage for everyone.
