  我们来先预览几个规则
 
  第一章讲解英语语法规则
 
  规则一:单数名词词尾加’s 构成所有格,以es和is结尾的名字的特殊所有格
 
  Exceptions are the possessives of ancient proper names in -es and -is, the possessive Jesus', and such forms as for conscience' sake, for righteousness' sake. But such forms as Achilles' heel, Moses' laws, Isis' temple are commonly replaced by
 
  the heel of Achilles(致命要害)
 
  the laws of Moses (摩西法律)
 
  the temple of Isis (伊西斯神庙)
 
  The pronominal possessives hers, its, theirs, yours, and oneself have no apostrophe.
 
  第二章讲解了写作的基本原则
 
  规则20:需要把相关的词汇放在一起
 
  The position of the words in a sentence is the principal means of showing their relationship. The writer must therefore, so far as possible, bring together the words, and groups of words, that are related in thought, and keep apart those which are not so related.
 
  The subject of a sentence and the principal verb should not, as a rule, be separated by a phrase or clause that can be transferred to the beginning.
 
  Wrong:Wordsworth, in the fifth book of The Excursion, gives a minute description of this church.
  Right:In the fifth book of The Excursion, Wordsworth gives a minute description of this church.
 
  Wrong:Cast iron, when treated in a Bessemer converter, is changed into steel.
  Right:By treatment in a Bessemer converter, cast iron is changed into steel.
