Beth Adubato offers readers a much-needed guide to grammar. When we were in grade school, we learned the rules of grammar. Perhaps we forgot them. Our grammar rubs off on our children and it affects us professionally. “Doing something is not the same as being something,” is an easy way to remember when to use an adverb. Adubato reminds us of when to use me, myself, and I. She reminds us not to drop g’s. I am guilty of this one. I live in an area where a “g” does not exist at the end of a word. Going becomes goin’. Eating becomes eatin’. It is part of our dialect, but it is incorrect. When do we use an apostrophe? Grammar for Grownups reminds us of those rules also.
This tiny book is invaluable. It just may keep us from embarrassing ourselves. It is small enough to cover a few basics. Adubato brings her vast experience to her book. This would make a great book to keep on your desk. Now, if I could just remember the rules of using a comma.
