Grammar

From adjectives to parallel construction, the elements of grammar are the building blocks of scholarly writing. Having trouble putting that complicated research into plain terms? Maybe breaking it down to sentence level and focusing on sentence construction can help.

Walden students and visitors are encouraged to use this material for their own education or instruction.
