Clear & Correct Expression (Paperback)
This book is on grammar, but it goes beyond grammar. Because by knowing the elements of grammar and the rules in putting them together, one can at best follow a text, but cannot communicate. One needs to cultivate language sense, develop understanding of language use, and learn to handle the tools of logical analysis. Logic helps. This book is a paradigm of reasoning and analysis, and it makes clear that anything that is logically invalid cannot be deemed grammatically correct. For example: "I say I am dumb" and "I am there." Being aware that a clear, correct, complete, and consistent write-up is a basic requirement in a professional career, the author designed this book to serve as a master key to unlock the door to the house of grammar. The book teaches how to handle tools of analysis for clear thinking, which is important because clarity in expression goes hand in hand with clarity of thought.
