This chapter reviews key skills and concepts that pose special problems for writers: * Sentence Fragments and Run-on Sentences * Subject-Verb Agreement * Pronoun-Antecedent Agreement * Verb Forms * Pronoun Forms * Comparison and Placement of Modifiers * Double Negatives * Standard Usage * Capitalization * Punctuation—Commas, End Marks, Semicolons, Colons, Quotation Marks, and Apostrophes * Spelling. Most of the exercises in this chapter follow the same format as the exercises found throughout the grammar, usage, and mechanics sections of this book.
