Course description

This course is a review of the elements of grammar. We examine sentence structure parts of speech correct verb forms case of pronouns agreement punctuation and restrictive and nonrestrictive (that/which) clauses. Along the way we learn something of the power and the pleasure of controlling grammar to make our words work for us exactly as we want them to. Short readings illustrate the basic elements and the beauties of grammar and style. Short reading assignments offer students opportunities to practice the lessons of the course.
