Format or citation style:Not applicable
Choose a topic about an issue of grammar, syntax, word choice, or punctuation that students not studying writing may need guidance on such as the singular ‘they’, weasel words, parallelism, active and passive voice, nominalisation, the serial comma, restrictive and non-restrictive clauses, pronoun agreement and reference, commas, apostrophes, etc. Make sure that you understand the concept yourself.
Please make sure that your entry is approximately 300 words. Invent your own examples. Do not copy examples from anywhere else such as websites or textbooks. Your 300 words should include your examples.
There are many fantastic usage sites on the internet from which you can synthesise material to include in your style-guide entry, but be careful about using the words of others. Summarise or use direct quotations. If you have consulted sites, you can add a list of works that you have consulted, as the exemplars provided show.
