The least imperfect of available handbooks on grammar.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Rules for Writers: A Brief Handbook: Updated With 1998 Mla Guidelines (Paperback)
Retains most of the necessary regulations, but permits the split infinitive: p. 113: "We decided actually to enforce the law" IS perfectly natural; those who disagree should revise to "We decided that we should actually enforce the law." Also, indefinite singulars, like "everyone" should never be equated with "their"! "Everyone" always must equal "he or she." I shall require the text again for my Quality Composition course, but with a lengthy note-sheet of qualifications.
