Welcome to the English grammar page.
The importance of grammar is well-understood. It was Moliere who said, “Grammar, which knows how to control even kings.” Truly, accuracy in speech is a quality that will get you places. Grammar also lets you use English with ease and confidence. There is a great difference between a person who can speak accurate, grammatical English, and a person who speaks the language full of mistakes. The difference is that of confidence, acceptability, and the projected image.
“True ease in writing comes from art, not chance,
As those move easiest who have learned to dance.”
- Alexander Pope, Sound and Sense
Just as those who have learned to dance can move gracefully, those who have learned the rules of grammar can use the language artfully.
However, learning English grammar can be challenging, because there are some queer rules in English. For example, its is a possessive (The cat is black. Its tail is long.), but it’s is a contraction of it is (It’s raining now).
Well, this eccentricity is what makes English grammar fascinating.
English is a language governed by rules that can be learned through understanding and practice. Here is a comprehensive collection of English grammar lessons and exercises.
