THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO ENGLISH USAGE FOR AUSTRALIAN STUDENTS
The Complete Guide to English Usage for Australian Students has been a trusted reference book for Australian secondary students for more than 25 years. The fifth edition retains the comprehensiveness and reliability of the previous edition but has been extensively revised to accurately reflect the new Australian Curriculum, including the use of grammatical terms such as ‘nominalisation’, ‘connectives’ and ‘noun group’. The Communication through Writing section has been re-arranged and extended to reflect the Australian Curriculum categories for types of text (imaginative texts, informative texts, and argumentative or persuasive texts). The Appendix on functional grammar has been retained and is a useful guide to some of the unfamiliar Australian Curriculum terminology, including concepts like modality and cohesion.
