Mechanics--The Elements of Style

Hello All!

Our grammar text for the month will be The Elements of Style. For many people, it holds the honor of being the first style and grammar handbook, aside from a classroom English/Compostion textbook, they use. It proves equally useful for academic and general writing. You can find it online at, until you buy a copy of your own.

"The Elements of Style

William Strunk, Jr.

Asserting that one must first know the rules to break them, this classic reference book is a must-have for any student and conscientious writer. Intended for use in which the practice of composition is combined with the study of literature, it gives in brief space the principal requirements of plain English style and concentrates attention on the rules of usage and principles of composition most commonly violated."
