Rhetorical Grammar is a writer's grammar - a text that presents grammar as a rhetorical tool, avoiding the do's and don'ts so long associated with the study of grammar. It reveals to student writers the system of grammar that they know subconsciously and encourages them to use that knowledge to understand their choices as writers and the effects of those choices on their readers.

Most writers, even very good ones, would probably admit to a lack of knowledge of and confidence regarding grammar. Many can write good sentences; but shouldn't they be able to discuss them, thinking about alternatives? And many can punctuate their sentences; but shouldn't they, too, be able to explain why? The place in the writing process where a knowledge of grammar often makes the biggest difference is in the revision process. This book therefore provides its readers with the tools to have more confidence in their writing, to have the ability to talk about why they made the writing choices they did, and to see the versatility, beauty and vast possibilities of language. Presenting grammar as a rhetorical tool, this book avoids the "do's and don'ts" so long associated with grammar. It reveals to readers the system of grammar they already know subconsciously, encouraging them to use that knowledge to understand their choices as writers. In addition to providing key strategies for revision, the book presents systematic discussions of audience expectation, sentence rhythm and cohesion, subordination and coordination, punctuation, modifiers, diction, and other principles. Writers, teachers, and anyone who writes in general.

  • I got this book (5th edition ... much cheaper than 6th) because the author is mentioned in The War Against Grammar. I'm awaiting her more basic grammar book, but plunged into this one (which arrived first). I have never had a good, technical writing course, and grew up in a time when this was not stressed. I have felt it was a weakness I needed to correct before my homeschooled son reaches middle school age. While this book is dense, it is very useful, and the exercises are interesting and well-chosen. I'd love to take this with a good teacher at the helm, but no such luck. Regardless, the book is do-able on its own, and I am very, very pleased with it. It is making me **think** about every comma and turn of phrase. I'm not "there" yet, but I feel I'm on the road with this book. I'm about 3/4 of the way through and intend to go back and outline it to make a reference manual for myself.

    If you are serious about correct writing that conveys what you want it to, this is a must-have book. I've long known I didn't know how to do this, but never how much I didn't know, nor what steps to take towards correction. Now I do.

  • Martha Kolln's book took my teaching to a whole new level. Finally, I found a simpatico educator and academic researcher...someone who's on the same wavelength as I am. Her work bolstered my theories and ideas, and expanded them into a more complex and rich expression. I share this book with my foreign graduate students, to help them understand the core of the language and how word and grammar and syntax affect the basics of rhetorical expression. This foundation is not clear to students from other languages. I reference it a lot, and recommend it often.

  • There's an old saying, that even Kings bow to grammar. What we can say from our standpoint is that every little bit helps – and we find that this book helps a lot.

  • Very helpful to speaking rhetorically! Thanks!

  • If you're looking to improve your composition skills, this is a must. One of my favourites! Tons of useful advice beyond grammar: sentence structure, reader expectation, how to engage the reader, etc.

  • GREAT BOOK FOR TEACHERS TO A TO A CLASSICS COLLECTION ON RHETORIC
