Abstract

[Extract] As an aspiring writer, you should understand the foundations of our language, whether you plan to be a journalist, scriptwriter, public relations practitioner or a producer. As your career progresses you may well subvert everything you learn here, but only people who understand the rules can break them and not compromise their ability to convey meaning. The theme throughout this chapter is the need to analyse and hone your own writing to make it grammatically correct. This theme will be further developed in Chapter 15, Subediting, News Language and Convention, which will examine professional style and convention. English grammar is a large subject, and not all of it is covered here. This chapter provides an overview of the key points that the educated writer should know.
