Grammar and UsageEdit

Common Errors in English (Paul Brians) -- One of my favorites. Mostly usage issues.

Guide to Grammar and Style (Jack Lynch) -- Lynch offers his view on Grammar and Style issues, often with a bit of dry humor.

The American Heritage Book of English Usage -- The American Heritage Book of English Usage (at is self-described as a book, "with detailed look at grammar, style, diction, word formation, gender, social groups and scientific forms, this valuable reference work is ideal for students, writers, academicians and anybody concerned about proper writing style." This resource is free and relatively up-to-date (1998). It is also available in print.

Online Grammar TextsEdit

These are free online college-level textbooks. They are excellent if you're looking to strengthen up your base knowledge of grammar.

Modern English Grammar by Daniel Kies

Traditional English Grammar: Description and Use by Donald E. Hardy

Guide to Grammar and Writing -- This is not quite a formal "textbook." It does, however, include much of the same information as the books above. The interactive quizzes on this site are particularly helpful for the grammar student attempting to self-teach.
