Order: The Sentence As Structure Create Space
Memorable prose is not an accident The writer of memorable prose understands the grammatical rules and the basic structure of English prose. The Sentence as Structure presents these rules in clear, easy-to-understand steps.
The Sentence as Structure is divided into two parts.
- In the first part, the reader reviews the rule of grammar that structure the sentence and the the rules for punctuation that derive from the structure.
- In the second part, The Structure of Content, the reader learns to connect sentences so that the prose flows seamlessly and content is clearly understood.
