about

In a handy, pocket-sized edition, The Canadian A to Z of Grammar, Spelling, and Punctuation offers advice on over 1,000 of the most common language errors in a clear and eye-catching format. The A to Z includes: simple solutions for bad grammar, over 150 writing tips for usage problems, conjugations of over 300 irregular verbs; explanations on the use of punctuation marks and capitalization with multiple examples; easy-to-understand definitions and examples for the most important grammar terms; and spelling help that no computer spell-checker can provide, including distinguishing between over 600 easily confused words. Through extensive ongoing research, the authors, Oxford University Press Canada''s Canadian dictionary editors, identify the most common grammar, spelling, and punctuation problems and provide practical solutions.

As a resource at home, at work, or in school, it will help anyone to use English correctly, confidently, and successfully.
