    Grammar books

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by Frederik, Dec 26, 2010.

    Hello,

    My name is Frederik and I am from Denmark.
    I was wondering, if any of you guys no some grammar books
    equal to: grammar.ccc.comment.edu/grammar/index2.htm

    I you know any grammar book that have all the reference they have
    in the website I have link.
    - And of course it should be at English the language of the book, and the
    grammar should, if you can find any, at English or American - both are best! :)

    Yours sincerely,

    Frederik :)

    that's not going to help him much, sid, since he needs to learn basic english grammar first... what he needs is a book version of the grammar site i sent him to, but i'm not familiar with good grammar texts for esl students... do you know of any?

    Yeah, you're right I wasn't thinking clearly mamammaia.

    "The Blue book of Grammar and Punctuation, by Jane Straus might be a better place to start.

    I had, Maia, but I cannot find anything I really think could be useful. And I really want some of you to come with some suggestion of a good grammar book at english and of course about the english grammar and writing! :)

    - But do you remember the file I once sent to you? It was a PDF-file. A grammar reference? Was it good enough just for the english grammar? I know that it's only about that, and not the American edition.

    Anyway, which grammar book is the most populair in England? :) And which is the best of the best? :p
