Sin and syntax how to craft wickedly effective prose
Bones Adjectives are consorts, never attending a party alone, preferring to hook themselves on the arm of a sturdy noun. In chapter 1, we talked about nouns that might be used in place of house. We can say that adjectives are the words that make the du- plex, dacha, or hacienda distinctive, by suggesting the size and shape of the structure boxy, sprawling , the trim around the windows and doors Victorian, postmodern , the color of the siding cerise, celadon , or the overall effect elegant, hangarlike, downright dingy. The comparative form of an adjective is used for comparing two people or things she is zanier than I , and the superlative is used for comparing one person or thing with every other member of its group she was the zaniest kid on the block. In the comparative and superla- tive forms, shorter adjectives take on a suffix -er or -est and others. And some forms are irregular: bad becomes worse in the comparative and worst in the superlative, good becomes better and best, and much becomes more and most.
The term is often used as a method of teaching writing in an innovative method that combines the academy and the street. The book approaches prose through words, sentences, and music which includes voice, lyricism, melody and rhythm. It then breaks down each of these ideas into separate chapters that are themselves broken into "bones" grammar lesson , "flesh" writing lesson , "cardinal sins" the don'ts and "carnal pleasures" the do's.

The motivating idea of all my language books is that we are all born with the gift of language and the love of words. This early infatuation the cooing and the babbling, the riddles and the rhyming, the love of nonsense and the taste for the slightly scatological is often beaten out of us. So I thank you for reading this e-book, using this e-book, and adapting it to your own needs. Please keep insisting that your wards rediscover that early love for the way words work—on the page and in the air. Hot damn.
