I’ve been asked if I can recommend some sources on grammar for lawyers who want to improve their knowledge. Yes I can. I’ll start with websites:
Purdue University’s Online Writing Lab (OWL).
The Tongue Untied
Grammar Girl (Mignon Fogarty) and her Quick-and-Dirty Tips
And some books:
- Mignon Fogarty, Grammar Girl’s Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing (Holt 2008).
- Patricia T. O’Conner, Woe is I: The Grammarphobe’s Guide to Better English in Plain English (Riverhead Books 1996).
- Margaret Schertzer, The Elements of Grammar (Macmillan 1986).
And a reference:
- Bryan A. Garner, Garner’s Modern American Usage (3rd Ed. Oxford U. Press 2009).
