Through Well-Ordered Language's unique, creative, and orderly method of analyzing the grammatical functions of the parts of speech, students will find the mastery of grammar achievable, meaningful, and delightful.
The carefully crafted pedagogy of this book helps students learn the mechanics ofgrammar while they also see the power of language unfolding before them as they learnto gather and arrange words to express their thoughts clearly and accurately.
