Description


The Oxford A-Z of Grammar and Punctuation offers accessible and coherent explanations across a broad range of topics, and is an excellent first port of call for any reader seeking clear, authoritative help with grammar and punctuation. Incorporating hundreds of examples of real usage taken from the Oxford English Corpus, this handy volume contains more than 300 alphabetically-arranged entries, including standard grammatical terms such as active voice, conjunction, pronoun, synonym, and transitive verb. It also discusses related questions of usage, including how to distinguish between 'may or might', 'that or which', and 'it's or its'. Over 30 feature entries on major headwords like adverb, clause, and spelling include diagrams listing related terms.

The A-Z has been fully revised and updated, and the structure and approach has been revisited to improve its accessibility, including clearer typographical conventions, and the reintroduction of the easy-to-use two-colour format found in early editions. Major headwords have been made (where possible) shorter and easier to navigate, and all sample sentences have been revised, replacing those that are out of date and adding new ones where needed. Readers of all levels will find this volume to be an essential tool for writing at home, in the office, at school, and at college.

STOREFRONT CLOSED FOR REGULAR BUSINESS

Nevertheless, UPB provides ship-to-home service.

Unless and until we move our on-line fulfillment team to different premises, everything you purchase from us ships from warehouses outside of Berkeley.

Much of what we used to carry on store shelves is available, except for very expensive books, used books, and titles fallen between printings.

Certain limitations apply:

  • Sometimes we may have to split an order because books are stocked at different warehouses.
  • Thus, we may remove items from a multi-book order and ask you to resubmit them on a separate order.
  • Many high demand titles ship fairly quickly. Most other titles travel from back east, adding 2 to 5 days to delivery
  • Although we love you in Canada, Latin America, and else where, U.S. orders only.
  • Certain publishers give us low merchant discounts on certain titles, sometimes no discount at all. To be honest, we've had to raise prices on these, ranging from 5% to 30% above list.

You can also purchase eBooks and audio books through us. Distributed by Hummingbird, they include publications from the major trade publishers. Just access the menu link or the sidebar image above.

We greatly appreciate your support of the store with your book orders. Need a book without our current shopping limitations? We recommend Bookshop. View our recommendations on Bookshop, then search for whatever book you'd like.


Should you have questions, email us via our contact form. Since none of are keeping regular hours, it may take a day to get back with you.
