I never had class with Martha at PSU, but her reputation was legendary, and this books demonstrates the depth of her knowledge and skill at applying grammatical concepts as writers choices.

New version of a classic and a must-have on the shelf of any literacy teacher! As the assigned textbook of a composition class I took in college, it was intimidating at first glance. And it never became as entertaining to me as, say, a novel. But it taught me to love grammar. To understand it and all its uses!

I will say that at first, the writing actually scared me. After a while, though, the book began to make much more sense. Now my biggest peeve with this book is how long some of the chapters are seriously, some of these chapters are super long; how am I supposed to read them all AND read like a pages per class times 6 class? Ultimately, when I look at the content, I feel like this book has been money well spent.

Read this book. Or actually, better yet, just buy an older addition of it. I think almost anyone could enjoy this! Rather than teaching grammar as a set of tools, the authors teach grammar as a set of tools to be selectively and skillfully employed based upon situation, audience, and purpose.

This book is a great resource for educators, writers, and anyone interested in the English language. I especially appreciated it as a writer--it made me think of new and different writing structures I can use for various effects : The book also includes helpful I love this book!

Finally, a grammar book shows students not just the elements of grammar, but how grammar makes texts sing. One of my favorite aspects of the text is that the authors have taken care to use the techniques in their own writing: Sentences actually explain the concepts using the grammatical structures the authors are teaching.

Astute readers are in on the playful syntax. It is perfect for high school students in an AP English course or a college freshman grammar course.

Rhetorical Grammar: Grammatical Choices, Rhetorical Effects

It shames me to confess that I am one of those people who, as a young student, escaped from school without having really learned grammar; and that when I compose I proceed as if I were blind: dependent on my clumsier faculties, stumbling from word to word, sentence to sentence, with no real guide to make my way. A book that offers grammatical instruction, therefore, is one whose lessons I am in desperate need. In a clever moment of thought the reader might speculate that the most insightful review of Kolln might be not what it is that I say, but rather how it is that I say it. A mizspelling hear or an grammatical error there--these will tell the story better than I. Let me then submit some comments that are more direct. Whereas other presentations of grammar ascend towards impossibly complex rules that are too numerous to remember or descend into the elementary with comments that are fitted only for the abecedarian, Kolln does neither.
