Grammar as a valuable tool for the writer

Rhetorical Grammarencourages writers to recognize and use the grammatical and stylistic choices available to them, and to understand the rhetorical effects of those choices on their readers. Kolin and Gray ask students to regard sentence structure as a toolkit — and its application an artful way to elicit a desired emotion or reaction — rather than a list of tedious rules to remember. In this way, grammar is defined as an intellectual exercise that opens students' minds to the versatility, beauty, and possibilities of language.

 

The Eighth Edition offers a more intuitive content organization, updated passage selections, and current exercises and examples. It maintains its hallmark revision strategies and systematic discussions about reader expectations, sentence rhythm and cohesion, subordination and coordination, punctuation, modification, diction, and many other essential principles.
