Introduction Good grammar pays. No, I’m not making a sentimental statement about the importance of a job well done or the satisfaction of learning for learning’s sake, though I believe in both of those values. I’m talking about cold, hard cash, the kind you fold and put into your wallet. Don’t believe me? Fine. Try this little test: The next time you go to the movies, tear yourself away from the story for a moment and concentrate on the dialogue. Chances are the characters who have fancy jobs or piles of dough sound different from those who don’t. I’m not making a value judgment here; I’m just describing reality. Proper English, either written or spoken, tends to be associated with the upper social or economic classes. Tuning up your grammar muscles doesn’t guarantee your entry into the Bill Gates income tax bracket, but poor grammar may make it much harder to fight your way in. Another payoff of good grammar is better grades and an edge in college admissions. Teachers have always looked more favorably on nicely written sentences, and grammar has recently become an additional hurdle that applicants must jump over or stumble through when they sit for the SAT or the ACT, the two most important standardized tests for the college bound. The good news is that you don’t have to spend a lifetime improving your English. Ten minutes here, ten minutes there, and before you know it, your grammar muscles will be toned to fighting strength. This book is the equivalent of a health-club membership for your writing and speaking skills. Like a good health club, it doesn’t waste your time with lectures on the physiology of flat abs. Instead, it sends you right to the mat and sets you up with the exercises that actually do the job. About This Book English Grammar Workbook For Dummies doesn’t concentrate on what we English teachers (yes, I confess I am one) call descriptive grammar — the kind where you circle all the nouns and draw little triangles around the prepositions. A closely guarded English-teacher secret is that you don’t need to know any of that terminology (well, hardly any) to master grammar. Instead, English Grammar Workbook For Dummies concentrates on functional grammar — what goes where in real-life speech and writing. Each chapter begins with a quick explanation of the rules (don’t smoke, don’t stick your chewing gum on the bedpost, be sure your sentence is complete, and so forth). Okay, I’m kidding about the smoking and the chewing gum, but you get the idea. I start off telling you what’s right and wrong in standard English usage. Next, I provide an example and then hit you with ten or so quick questions. Just to make sure you know that I’m not wasting your time, in every chapter I give you a sample from real-life English (with a fairly absurd situation, just to keep your funny bone tingling), so you can see how proper grammar actually aids communication. After filling in the blanks, you can check your answers at the end of the chapter. In English Grammar Workbook For Dummies, I also tell you why a particular choice is correct, not just for the sake of learning a set of rules but rather to help you make the right decision the next time — when you’re deciding between their and they’re or went and had gone, for example. As the author of English Grammar For Dummies (Wiley) and a grammar teacher for more decades than I care to count (let’s just say that I had an inkwell in my first classroom), I believe that if you truly get the logic of grammar — and most rules do rest upon a logical basis — you’ll be a better, more precise communicator. English Grammar Workbook For Dummies offers a special welcome to readers for whom English is a second language. You’ve probably picked up quite a bit of vocabulary and basic grammar already. English Grammar Workbook For Dummies lets you practice the little things — the best word choice for a particular sentence, the proper way to create a plural, and so forth. This book moves you beyond comprehension to mastery. Finally, because standardized college entrance exams are now a permanent part of the landscape, I’ve taken special care to provide examples that mirror those horrible tests. If you’re facing the SAT or the ACT in the near future, don’t despair. Everything the grammar-testing gurus expect you to know is in this book. Conventions Used in This Book To make your practice as easy as possible, I’ve used some conventions throughout this book so that from chapter to chapter or section to section you’re not wondering what the heck is going on. Here are a few to note: At the end of each chapter is the “Answers” section, which covers all the exercises in that chapter. You can find the answers by thumbing through the book until you come to the pages with the gray trim on the outside edge. The last exercise in each chapter is comprehensive, so you can check your mastery of the material in that chapter and sharpen your editing skills. You can find the comprehensive answers and explanations in the “Answers” section. The callout numbers pointing to the corrections in the exercise correspond with the numbered explanations in the text. I also provide an appendix devoted entirely to providing comprehensive practice with the grammar skills you develop as you consult English Grammar For Dummies and as you complete the exercises throughout this workbook. What You’re Not to Read I promise you that I’ve kept the grammar jargon to a minimum in this workbook, but I must admit that I have included a couple of terms from schoolbook land. If you stumble upon a definition, run away as fast as you can and try the sample question instead. If you can get the point without learning the grammatical term, you win a gold star. Likewise, feel free to skip the explanation of any question that you get right, unless of course you want to gloat. In that case read the explanation while crowing, “I knew that.” Foolish Assumptions In writing the English Grammar Workbook For Dummies, I’m assuming that you fall into one or more of these categories: You know some English but want to improve your skills. You aspire to a better job. 2 English Grammar Workbook For Dummies You want higher grades or SAT/ACT scores. You feel a bit insecure about your language skills and want to communicate with more confidence. You’re still learning to speak and write English fluently. I’ve made two more global assumptions about you, the reader. First, you have a busy life with very little time to waste on unnecessary frills. With this important fact in mind, I’ve tried to keep the explanations in this book clear, simple, and short, so you can get right to it and practice away. I’ve left the fancy grammar terms — gerunds, indicative mood, copulative verb, and the like — by the wayside, where, in my humble opinion, they belong. I don’t want to clutter up your brain; I just want to give you what you need to know to speak and write in standard English. For the total, complete, and occasionally humorous explanations, pick up a copy of the companion book, English Grammar For Dummies, also written by yours truly (and published by Wiley). Second, I assume that you hate boring, schoolbook style. You’d prefer not to yawn as you read. No problem! I too glaze over when faced with sentences like “The administrative council approved the new water-purification project outlined in by-law 78-451 by a margin of three votes to two.” To keep you awake, I’ve used my somewhat insane imagination to create amusing sentences that will (I hope) make you smile or even laugh from time to time. How This Book Is Organized Life gets harder as you go along, doesn’t it? So too English Grammar Workbook For Dummies. Parts I and II concentrate on the basics — plopping the right verbs into each sentence, forming singulars and plurals, creating complete sentences, and so on. Part III moves up a notch to the pickier stuff, not exactly world record but definitely the state-champ level. In Parts III and IV, you get to try your hand at the most annoying problems presented by pronouns (those pesky little words such as I, me, theirs, whomever, and others), advanced verb problems, and comparisons (different than? different from? find out here!). Part V is totally practical, polishing up your writing style and explaining some common word traps into which you may fall. Now for more detail. Part I: Laying Out the Concrete Slab: Grammar Basics In this part I take you through the basic building blocks — verbs (words that express action or state of being) and subjects (who or what you’re talking about) — with a quick side trip into pronouns (I, he, her, and the like). I show you how to create a complete sentence. In this part you practice choosing the correct verb tense in straightforward sentences and find out all you need to know about singular and plural forms. Part II: Mastering Mechanics This part’s devoted to two little things — punctuation and capital letters — that can make or break your writing. If you’re not sure whether to head North or north or if you want to know where a comma belongs, this part’s for you. Introduction 3 Part III: The Pickier Points of Correct Verb and Pronoun Use Paging who and whom, not to mention I and me. This part tackles all the fun stuff associated with pronouns, including the reason why (for all practical intents and purposes) everyone can’t eat their lunch. Part III also solves your time problems, making you decipher the shades of difference in verb tense (wrote? had written?) and voice (not alto or soprano, but active or passive). Part IV: All You Need to Know about Descriptions and Comparisons Part IV doesn’t tackle which stock is a bad investment (and which is even worse), but it puts you through your paces in selecting the best descriptive words (good? well?). Part IV also weeds out illogical or vague comparisons. Part V: Writing with Style In Part V, the wind sprints and stretches are over, and it’s time to compete with world-class writers. The toughest grammatical situations, plus exercises that address fluidity and variety, face you here. I also throw in some misunderstood words (healthful and healthy, to name just two) and let you practice proper usage in this part. Part VI: The Part of Tens Here you find ten ways that people trying to be super-correct end up being super-wrong and ten errors that can kill your career (or grade). Icons Used in This Book Icons are the cute little drawings that attract your gaze and alert you to key points, pitfalls, and other groovy things. In English Grammar Workbook For Dummies, you find these three: I live in New York City, and I often see tourists staggering around, desperate for a resident to show them the ropes. The Tip icon is the equivalent of a resident whispering in your ear. Psst! Want the inside story that will make your life easier? Here it is! When you’re about to walk through a field riddled with land mines, it’s nice to have a map. The Warning icon tells you where the traps are so you can delicately run like mad from them. Theory doesn’t go very far when you’re working on grammar. You have to see the language in action, so to speak. The Practice icon alerts you to (surprise!) an example and a set of practice exercises so you can practice what I just finished preaching. 4 English Grammar Workbook For Dummies Where to Go from Here To the refrigerator for a snack. Nope. Just kidding. Now that you know what’s where, turn to the section that best meets your needs. If you’re not sure what would benefit you most, take a moment to think about what bothers you. No, I’m not talking about the fact that your favorite brand of yogurt just cut two ounces from each container. I’m talking about the parts of writing or speaking that make you pause for a lengthy head scratch. Do you have trouble picking the appropriate verb tense? Is finding the right word a snap but placing a comma cause for concern? Do you go out of your way to avoid sentences with who because you never know when to opt for whom? After you’ve done a little grammatical reconnaissance, select the sections of this book that meet your needs. Use the “How This Book Is Organized” section earlier in this introduction, the table of contents, and the index to find more detail about what is where. Turn to the exercises that address your issues and use the rest to line the birdcage. Of course, if you decide to read every single word I’ve written, you win my “favorite person of the month” award. But don’t beat yourself up if you pick and choose from the selection of tune-ups. If you aren’t sure whether a particular topic is a problem, no problem! Run your eyeballs over the explanation and sample question. Try a couple of sentences and check your answers. If everything comes out okay and you understand the answers, move on. If you stub your toe, go back and do a few more until the grammar rule becomes clear. When you understand each concept separately but have trouble putting the whole picture together, take a stab at the comprehensive exercise that ends each chapter. You have to find and correct mistakes in a short piece of lunatic writing. After you find them, check yourself. One more thing: Don’t try to do everything at once. Hit your mind with a half cup of grammar (about ten minutes or so) at a time. More will stick, and as a huge plus, you’ll have time to go bowling. Introduction
