Grammar Arcana

You've mastered agreement; you know how to make a sentence parallel; pronouns give you no problems. But do you know what ablaut reduplication is, when to use a hortatory subjunctive, whether a double genitive is correct or how a reduced relative clause is phrased? A lot goes on “under the hood” of English; this session delves deeply into its inner workings. When you know how it all works, you know how to fix a sentence that "just doesn't sound right."
