Grammar is a set of structural rules

for a language

 

 A good knowledge of grammar helps us use language more effectively, both in our writing and in our speaking.  Good grammar usage helps us to communicate efficiently by producing clear, precise ‘pictures’ of what it is we want to convey to our readers and/or listeners.

These books are designed to give basic information and practice about various types of words.  They are best used, not in isolation, but in conjunction with a language and writing program. These books cover the basics of traditional grammar knowledge and may be used from Year 1 to Year 6.

Grammar Book 4: Prepositions and Conjunctions #15104    $55.00

A preposition is a small word such as 'in', 'on', 'after' etc. that describes a relationship between other words in a sentence. On their own, prepositions are difficult to define. However, when they combine with noun groups to make prepositional phrases, they help to qualify a noun or to tell when, where or under what conditions things happen.

Conjunctions are joining words. Conjunctions join words, phrases or clauses in a sentence. Conjunctions can also join two or more simple sentences.

Grammar Book 5:  Parsing and Punctuation #15105    $55.00

The word 'parse' comes from the Latin word pars, meaning 'part'. To parse a sentence means to take it apart and identify the parts of speech, pointing out their grammatical relationships to each other.

Punctuation marks are symbols that indicate the structure and organisation of written language, as well as intonation and pauses to be observed when reading aloud. In written English, punctuation is vital to ensure that the meaning of sentences is clear.
