Course Description

If you have ever spent half an hour researching whether e-mail can be used as a verb, if you took our Intensive Review of Grammar course and want more – this Advanced Roundtable course is for you. If you are a grammar stickler, you’ll find this intensive exploration of the finer points, inner structures, and logic behind grammar fun and energizing.

We will:

  • Discuss various philosophies about grammar, the origins of grammar rules, and the case against “rule-based” grammar
  • Examine particles, determiners, interrupters, and other useful ways to describe sentence structures
  • Examine the difference between an absolute phrase and a descriptive one

Prerequisite: Writing and/or editing documents experience
