First Sentence
I have just spent some time considering the ways in which grammar can be an intimidating matter for those many people who feel that they are not entirely competent in it. Read the first page

bless the poms 20 Aug. 2008
By David Murray - Published on
Format: Paperback
Great for teachers, students, wannabe writers and those who use Australian/ British English. Being in my forties, I am of that generation where grammar was considered an unfashionable hindrance to the "creative" notions of education applied at the time. As a current post-graduate English student who is expected to have a high level of written communication skill, my lack of fundamentals has left me relying on the backup and support grammar guides provide. Richard Palmer's is the easiest I've used thus far. The author knows his stuff. In relation to rules he is firm without being pedantic. To someone who uses guides primarily for reinforcement, the layout and structure of Palmer's book makes hunting down specific rules a straightforward activity. Practical examples encourage the reader to be confident in what's they're being told. The book is also portable without skimping on the basics. Overall the book reflects the writer's philosophy - "grammar serves langauage: it has done and it always will do. It has never been, nor should ever be, the other way round".
PS, Does the full stop go inside or outside the inverted comma at the end?
