Description
Introduction: The third edition of The Elements of Style by William Strunk and E.B. White is an excellent guide to the basic principles of English style. However, as times change, students start making different kinds of errors. Consequently, I have composed this list of supplemental rules to remind students of rules that The Elements of Style takes for granted. Below, I begin by listing the most important of Strunk and White's rules, and then list my additional rules, with explanations and examples. Sample sentences (marked with a "•") are correct unless otherwise indicated. Author: B.W. Van Norden
