Essay Troubles (click on this heading in the menu)
Covers problems common to undergraduate essays. It is organized around six major categories, each of which isolates a distinct set of writing troubles. It moves from troubles with words and with parts of the sentence to troubles on the level of the entire sentence, and ultimately the paragraph. Thus, under its first four categories, Essay Troubles deals with problems in an ascending order of relevance to expository writing. The remaining two subsections Mechanics and Punctuation deal with the non-grammatical conventions and rules of writing.
