Grammar is nothing more than a set of rules that specifies how we use words to communicate. This seems harmless enough, but for many people the word grammar comes with a bad reputation. It is probably best left to psychologists to give good reasons for its bad rep, but suffice it to say that the mere mention of grammar can prompt winces and groans and quickly thin a crowd. Yet, here you are, not only holding but also reading this book, suggesting there is something about the topic that interests you enough to get this far . . .
Welcome! The main point of Everyday Grammar is to make it easier for you to become more familiar with grammar in general and better at using grammar in everyday situations. If you share this goal, then together we can demystify some of the confusing aspects of grammar and make it start working better for you.
An important observation at the outset is that regardless of how much you care about grammar, it is totally indifferent to you. Grammar does not “give a hoot” about how well you understand the underlying language rules or how well you use them.
Grammar is just the set of rules. It is up to you (and every individual) to determine your relationship with the rules and the extent to which you will pay attention to them. If you are looking for good reasons to strengthen your grammar skills, look no further.
