Introductory Note: This chapter is not, as some sites are, a comprehensive review of grammar and punctuation, because those can be confusing and unhelpful if you do not know exactly what your problem is or what grammatical term you need to look under. Instead, it is a response to very common problems that college writers experience in these areas. Scroll down and see if you can find the question that you need answered; if not, click to Other Links for reference to sites with very complete online grammar handbooks.
