Foreign Language Grammar

Some grammar rules (and embarrassing mistakes!) transcend the uniqueness of different regions and style guides. This new International Grammar section by OnlineBookClub.org ultimately identifies those rules thus providing a simple, flexible rule-set, respecting the differences between regions and style guides. You can feel free to ask general questions about spelling and grammar. You can also provide example sentences for other members to proofread and inform you of any grammar mistakes.

Foreign Language Grammar

Post by Jennifer Fernandez »

Some authors use phrases in foreign languages to add some realism to the story and characters. I love it when they do it right but, it absolutely offends me when they commit basic grammar errors. I'm talking about the foreign language's grammar. I feel authors should research and make absolutely sure that what they are writing makes sense in that language. What do you guys think? Does it matter or not?

Yes it is really important to use the word correctly, either it is in foreign language or not. Incorrect usage of words may lead to misunderstanding.
