  • Description

    The book, Better English, teaches you English grammar in a new approach unlike other conventional grammar books. The author, Norman Lewis, has given practical situations for each topic for better understanding by the student. 

    Summary Of The Book

    The author has adopted a different approach to learning of English grammar in the book Better English. Spelling and pronunciation in English can be difficult to comprehend by an average literate person. Norman Lewis has tried to present these two topics around the common problems that are faced.

    Every Chapter name (within brackets) on grammar has a prefix “How to” explaining the situation related to the topic. The book has 36 Chapters. They are listed as follows: What is Grammar?, A Test of Your Present Grammatical Ability, How to Deliver the Message to Garcia (Verbs) as Easy as ABC, How to Call a Name (Nouns), How to Be Explicit (Adjectives), How to Substitute (Pronouns), How to Do Almost Anything (Adverbs), How to End a Sentence (Prepositions), How to Show Emotion (Interjections), How to Join (Conjunctions), How to Measure Your Progress - Your First Achievement Test, How to Make Your Verbs Agree (subjects and predicates), How to Get the Right Number (Singulars and Plurals), How to Test a Verb (Objects), How to Keep Your Sanity with Lay and Lie (Transitive and Intransitive Verbs), How to Let Circumstances Alter Cases (Predicate Nominatives), How to Keep on Good Terms with Your Relatives (Who and Whom), How to Measure Your Progress-A Second Achievement Test, How to Fill in (Ellipsis), How to Analyze a Verb (Tense), How to Express a Mood (The Subjunctive), How to Split an Infinitive (Infinitives), How to Let Participles Dangle (Participles), How to Be Illiterate (Basement-Level Errors), How to Talk Like a Human Being (Allowable 'Errors'), How to Measure Your Progress - A Final Test of Your Grammatical Ability, What is Correct Pronunciation, Trends in American Pronunciation, Our Erratic Language, Check up on Your Pronunciation, How to Say It, A Restatement of Principles, The Thirteen Hardest Words to Spell, Ten Handy Spelling Rules and Memory Aids, Tricks to Remember Special Words, and Index to Grammar Section.

    Instead of focusing on what correct English is, the author has explained why it is like that. The approach is scientific. The self-assessment tests in between the chapters help the readers check their progress.

    Great Book to correct your common error in English

    Norman took a very different approach to teach correct Grammar. He didn't focus on the what is the correct English, rather he explain why it is so. He took a very scientific approach to remove your common error, you make in English.
    Everyone who lack confidence in English,should read this book.

    Goof for those who have prior and basic knowledge of Grammar

    This book is meant for those who want to improve their grammar. Though it will teach you all about nouns, pronouns, adjectives etc etc from the beginning but it will be difficult for a novice to understand.

    It has a section that is called easy as abc it tells about various mistakes that we commit while writing of speaking sentence and shows contradiction between two different words that sounds same and which word to use at which situation!!
