Our printable Grammar Definitions ebook is our printable booklet of definitions that you can use for easy desk reference or as a resource on a phone or tablet at-a-glance.
Our booklet is in two different formats:
And it has the same definitions as are in our grammar worksheets. Enjoy!
The Grammar terms are easy to learn once you've read a quick reference of the words that define what the words in a sentence do. This is why our definitions booklet begins with sentence construction.
We really suggest that you quickly read through the definitions in learning order first and then keep the alphabetical Grammar Definitions booklet close for reference.
Since most of the words mean what they mean in other venues you can learn them quickly. Most of the trick with learning Grammar is learning the names of the jobs that words can do.
Understanding grammar is important for those who write, read, and follow directions. Writers need to convey their thoughts well, so that readers can understand them well.
All in all it's grammar that gives text it's logic and order.
One day I decided to read the Harvey's English Grammar book. I was surprised not only that such a small book was the main grammar book of old, but also at how much it taught - and so easily.
After reading the book I realized that the definitions of grammar terms were most of what it takes to understand grammar.
Still something was hugely missing.
How should all the pieces fit together? How can you see the logic in a sentence?
Simple. Put the terms on a diagram. Once you see where the different parts of speech fit on a chart, you'll understand the grammar definitions better.
