“From Word to Sentence” is a student’s and editor’s textbook. It is both a reference book and a guide to effective composition.

Writing Handbook 2nd edition” co-authored by Bernard J. Streicher, S.J. was published by Loyola Press in 1996. It was a major revision and expansion of the original “Writing Handbook.” This present volume, “From Word to Sentence: A Guide to Grammar, Usage, and Sentence Style” (published by Xlibris), is significant in two ways: it is an updated version of the 1996 edition and is the first of two volumes.

This book presents a thorough examination of grammar, usage and sentence style. It is set up as a series of rules followed by examples. Among the special features are a section on the capitalization of religious terms, an entire unit on diagramming and a glossary of frequently confused words. In addition, there are a variety of sentence exercises, including some on inclusive language, parallel structure and sentence combining. This book is designed as an instructional guide and as a handbook for writers and editors.

“Precise and effective English is important for good communication,” Streicher says. “This book combines English grammar and style. It would be difficult to find a textbook with a more thorough coverage of grammar, usage, and diagramming. As with the 1996 edition, this book is carefully and thoroughly indexed.”
