Grammar Gaffes is an amusing look at English grammar by Alan Rutkowski, who became known as a grammar guru by readers of his column in the Edmonton Journal. A cast of characters with names like Jadwiga and Colbart illustrate the gaffes and foibles that plague even native English speakers. Especially interesting is the chapter on pet peeves sent in by readers. From the greengrocer's apostrophe to commonly confused words, Grammar Gaffes offers explanations that are both easy to understand and entertaining. Repetition and reinforcement exercises make Grammar Gaffes a perfect resource for self-instruction. See for yourself. Read it and enjoy mastering English.
