    This book consists of four parts. These are: Part 1 starts with word classes which are also known as parts of speech. As words are the building blocks of language, it is, therefore, vitally important to understand how they are classified and governed by the rules of the English grammar. Part 2 is devoted to analysis, transformation and synthesis of different types of phrases, clauses and sentences. This part follows Part 1 so that the reader can fully grasp the importance of each class of words and the role that can be played by different words in phrases, clauses and sentences. Part 3 deals with punctuation. Punctuation makes written communication clear. Part 4 examines writing skills for letter writers. It demonstrates good letter writing basic requirements in the English-speaking world. It is suggested that Parts 1 and 2 are to be read consecutively. Parts 3-4 may be read in any order. Test Your Knowledge section has some exercises. It is recommended that self-learners and students work the exercises out for themselves first and then compare them with the solutions provided. The glossary contains an alphabetical list of definitions of terms used in this book. Addendum contains some information on word formation, such as phrasal verbs.
