    It is now over half a century since Dr. Fernald’s English Grammar Simplified was first given to the public. This book has stood the test of time and public use because it is logically designed and skillfully executed to meet the needs of everyone who wishes to understand English grammar and to improve his speech and writing. The book is designed, as Dr. Fernald pointed out, as a complete summary of English grammar. It is not in the class of small grammars that are made brief by leaving out bodily numerous important matters. Brevity has been secured by eliminating discussions and extended explanations, while retaining every important fact. Dr. Fernald’s aim was to include everything in correct English usage that is the legitimate object of rational inquiry. In preparing this grammar, Dr. Fernald made an intensive study of the best authorities of his day, including the most authoritative treatises on grammar, textbooks in grammar used by reputable public schools, and the New English Dictionary, with its unrivaled store of quotations from standard English authors. Everything in this work is the product of extensive study and is therefore dependable.
