The book is organized in 55 chapters with a section for each part of the speech: nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, conjunctions, and prepositions. There are also sections for sentences and miscellaneous. References appear in footnotes throughout the text. Contains a glossary, an index, and an answer key. (KFT)
