Writing Help: Grammar, Punctuation, and Usage: Home

If you've forgotten when you need to use further instead of farther, whether or not to use a colon or a semicolon, or whether you have written a complete sentence or two, this guide should answer your questions.


Whether a native or non-native American English user, whether an expert or novice, sometimes we all forget basic rules of grammar, punctuation, and usage. This guide should help with any of these problems. Although the library has many books that can be useful, sometimes we cannot get to the library when we need assistance. However, web sites cannot always be trusted to provide the best information. Therefore, in this guide you can find vetted web sites that will help you with your writing problems.
