Today is National Grammar (not Grammer) Day. The magic Dewey number for English usage is a straightforward 428.2
The subject tracings, on the other hand, are confusing. They include
English language --Usage.
English language --Errors in usage.
English language --Syntax.
English language --Grammar.
English language --Style.
English language --Punctuation.
Any given book may have only one or two of these tracings.
This is a case where browsing the stacks may work better than trying a subject search. This is a fairly small library so just walk over to 428.2 and take a look. (Try 420 or plain 428 for some of our older titles).
What do we have?
