The importance of the spoken and written word in Christian culture cannot be overestimated. In this English grammar guide,Our Mother Tongue Nancy Wilson surveys the major concepts in English grammar for beginners at the late elementary and junior high level, even adults seeking a brush-up.

In the exercises, Wilson goes beyond common, contrived sentences that serve merely to illustrate a point and uses many selections from Scripture and from great English writers which help to instruct the student through their content, style, and structure. In addition to a helpful format that highlights key definitions, punctuation issues, and important concepts, short historical sidebars tell the fascinating story of the development of English. She continues the traditional and challenging exercise of sentence diagramming, which trains students to quickly analyze the structure of any given sentence.

The grammatical explanations, the logic of diagrams, and the rhetoric of her examples blend with complementary emphases to create a helpful classical and Christian text.
