The book is organized in fifteen comprehensive chapters, each subdivided in modular sections that can be studied separately. It includes 400 references, from the most-cited contemporary publications to influential classic works; 500 index entries covering frequently used concepts in the field; more than 100 thought-provoking questions, all elaborately answered, which are ideal for teacher-supported self-education; nearly 100 assignments that provide ample material for teachers to focus on specific topics of their own preference in their lectures.Jan Renkema is a member of the Department of Communication and Information Sciences at Tilburg University, The Netherlands. He is also editor of "Discourse, of Course" (2009) and author of "The Texture of Discourse" (2009).

Download and read online The Elements of F cking Style in PDF and EPUB The truth about English is that it can get pretty boring. Dangling modifiers, gerunds, punctuation marks--it's enough to make you want to drop out of high school. Swearing and sex on the other hand, well, these time-honored pastimes warm the cockles of our hearts. Now, The Elements of F*cking Style drags English grammar out of the ivory tower and into the gutter, injecting a dull subject with a much-needed dose of color. This book addresses everything from common questions ("What the hell is a pronoun?") to philosophical conundrums ("Does not using paragraphs or periods make my thesis read like it was written by a mental patient?"). Other valuable sections include: •All I've got in this world are my sentences and my balls, and I don't break 'em for nobody •A colon is more than an organ that gets cancer •Words your bound to f*ck up One glance at your friend's blog should tell you everything you need to know about the sorry state of the English language. This book gives you the tools you need to stop looking like an idiot on message boards and in interoffice memos. Grammar has never before been so much f*cking fun.

Download and read online The Sense of Style in PDF and EPUB “Charming and erudite . . . The wit and insight and clarity he brings . . . is what makes this book such a gem.” —Time.com Why is so much writing so bad, and how can we make it better? Is the English language being corrupted by texting and social media? Do the kids today even care about good writing—and why should we care? In this entertaining and eminently practical book, the cognitive scientist, dictionary consultant, and New York Times–bestselling author Steven Pinker rethinks the usage guide for the twenty-first century. Using examples of great and gruesome modern prose while avoiding the scolding tone and Spartan tastes of the classic manuals, he shows how the art of writing can be a form of pleasurable mastery and a fascinating intellectual topic in its own right. The Sense of Style is for writers of all kinds, and for readers who are interested in letters and literature and are curious about the ways in which the sciences of mind can illuminate how language works at its best.
