KIRKUS REVIEW

The standards of good grammar are here declined with more than standard eclat: this is actually a grammar that is Fun to read. Mr. Morsberger sets out with a brief history of grammar (the Vedas provided the first formal grammar study) and concludes with an eye to grammatical possibilities on Mars. Between times, he gives definitions and uses of nouns, pronouns and participles, verbs, adjectives, adverbs and the rest of the grammatical family; delivers up the mysteries of punctuation and us from the evils of jargon, pseudo literary language, dead wood...More basic and less eclectic than St Strunk et al., a standard grammar all dressed up and ready to go.
