Course Description

This course demystifies subjects that many people today find daunting. It is aimed at native English speakers who feel they write competently but who wish to improve their understanding of grammar and punctuation, either for their own writing or in preparation to study editing. It will focus on building a useful vocabulary of language terms; identifying types of words (parts of speech) and their function in a sentence; studying groups of words (phrases and clauses), how they interrelate, and how punctuation illuminates these relationships; reviewing the roles of punctuation marks; applying punctuation principles to create clear, grammatical sentences; and understanding the evolving nature of "correct" English. If English is your first language and you would like to feel more confident in your writing skills, this course will interest you.
