OK, Sarah, your new name is 'An Advanced English Grammar Book'.

Sorry, but I couldn't resist. Your sentence would be better phrased, 'Hi. Please tell me the name of...', not 'name me'.

 

One of the more common style and grammar books is The Chicago Manual of Style. This is a reference used by many in the publishing industry. It will answer many grammar questions, but will go far deeper into proper writing than just grammar. If you have continuous Internet access, there are many sites that will answer most of your question without having to wait for a person to answer them. It will take some practice to find the good ones.

 

Here is a link to there web site.

A new book/ebook available worldwide, "What Foreigners Need To Know About America From A To Z: How to understand crazy American culture, people, government, business, language and more,” helps foreigners benefit from a better understanding, including our language. Endorsed by ambassadors, educators, and editors, it even has chapters on English grammar and speech that identify the key problems common to foreigners (and Americans!) and how they can polish their communication skills.
Why is English such a monster to learn? Here's an excerpt from the book: "As you may know, English grammar rules are full of generalities and the generalities are full of exceptions. Even the exceptions have exceptions. This is why English is one of the most difficult languages to master." The book (and e-book) is filled with tips anyone can use to polish their speech and understand the key basics of English. Probably the number one problem foreigners have is slowing down when speaking English, followed by pronouncing consonants.
As the book points out, foreigners may think they know English but in many cases they have difficulty communicating to Western ears because of the common problems most have. For example, if Spanish speakers learned to pronounce the TH sound in English correctly instead of like the DA sound, it would significantly reduce their accent. However, most struggle in their efforts and need guidance. Perhaps concerned citizens and books like this can extend a helping hand.
Good luck! www.AmericaAtoZ.com
