The Lit­tle Green Gram­mar Book

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Books -

By Mark Tredin­nick Uni­ver­sity of NSW Press, 272pp, $ 29.95 AC­CORD­ING to the book’s pub­li­cist, the au­thor ‘‘ makes gram­mar use­ful; he even makes it fun’’. I must have missed the mer­ri­ment but I cer­tainly can see the book’s ben­e­fits for any­body who has to write a speech or a story, leg­is­la­tion or a let­ter. The Lit­tle Green Gram­mar Book is a great deal harder to use than the du­bi­ous gram­mar checks in word pro­cess­ing pro­grams, but it will help you un­der­stand why and how the lan­guage works.
