Complete English Grammar Rules
It has been fashionable for some time to believe that grammar does not matter so long as the meaning is clear. Fair enough so far as it goes, but that is not very far. A missing comma can sink a ship, and there is a great deal of difference between no-one shall save me, I will drown and no-one will save me, I shall drown life and death, in fact. Loose constructions and punctuation in the written and spoken word can result in loss of clarity, but in the drawing office - or even on the sketch-pad -loose construction or careless presentation always leads to misunderstanding, sometimes fatal. This being so, I make no excuses for spending a considerable part of this book on the rules.
At grammar-school age there is very little difference between the hand of a boy and that of a girl but at adolescence there is a big change. The boys hand is much larger and sturdier, showing development of bone and muscle. The girl's hand never develops the big knuckles of the boy's, since the bones stay smaller. The heel of the hand develops in the boy, but stays much softer and slimmer in the girl. In the boys hand the fingernails as well as the fingers are slightly broader.
Any language must be defined by a set of rules with regard to such things as sentence construction, grammar and spelling. Different languages have different rules and the rules of one language do not necessarily apply to the rules of another. Take as examples the English and German languages. In English, word order is all important. The subject always comes before the object. Thus the two sentences 'the dog bit the man' and 'the man bit the dog' mean very different things. However, in German, the subject and object are defined, not by word order but by the case of the definite or indefinite articles. Although word order is important in German, such that the sequence 'time-manner-place' is usually followed, it can be changed without any loss of meaning. The phrase'the dog bit the man' translates to 'der Hund bisst den Mann'. The words for dog (Hund) and man (Mann) are both masculine and hence the definite article is 'der'. In this case the man being the object is shown by the change of...
Anyone who has learned to write can, obviously, read. By now you should be able to make a reasonable drawing or sketch, and should, therefore be able to read them. However, there are difficulties occasionally. While a young child can read, it is not able to read fluently until much later, when he or she has had a lot of practice. That is the best advice I can give to start with. Make a lot of sketches and drawings, copying those from a magazine even, and use them in the shop. Stick exactly to the rules and grammar for every drawing you make, and especially correct any departures from the rules that you may find in published drawings.
Years ago when I was attending school, I had an English professor who taught me an important lesson about art and life. At the beginning of the term a student asked him about the importance of spelling and grammar. His reply was that while he felt those things were important, he didn't really care if there were a few mechanical That day the professor opened up a new dimension in my thoughts about writing. In many of my previous English classes, I was so stressed over getting the spelling right or trying to decipher the mysteries of English grammar that I never felt truly free to express myself. It made me think about my art and how I would often get caught up in the mechanics and forget having a purpose for my pictures. The result was that while I did okay with proportions and shading, my work lacked inspiration.
