English Language & Composition is a user-friendly review book that will make any student--or those trying to help them--feel like he or she has a private tutor. Each chapter includes detailed questions that allow students to assess how well they've mastered each idea. Not only does the author provide the right answers to these self-study questions, but there are also detailed explanations of why the wrong answers are wrong. When is a comma used? Why are some titles capitalized? How are dangling modifiers prevented? There are hundreds of grammatical and compositional rules, many of them difficult to understand and memorize. With just as many exceptions to the rules! English Language & Composition focuses on all aspects of writing, with clear lessons and exercises on: Parts of speech, Types of essays, Punctuation, Revisions, Tone, Common errors to avoid, The writing process, Essential preparation for the new SAT Writing and Grammar Section, Types of sentences
