The Secrets of Syntax

We’ve all flipped a sentence around, or dismantled it and then recombined it, only to find that suddenly it comes to life. Why does that happen? How can we become more adept at manipulating word order—or syntax—to boost clarity, emphasis, and rhythm? This seminar looks at syntax from various angles, including how to shape it for different genres and readers. Topics covered include subordination and coordination, periodic versus cumulative sentences, proximity of subject and verb, echo words, and special techniques such as ellipsis and isolation.

About the Instructor

Editor-writer Frances Peck, CPE (Hon.), has worked with words for nearly three decades. She prepared the Canadian edition of The St. Martin’s Workbook, a grammar exercise book; co-authored the HyperGrammar website; and wrote Peck’s English Pointers, a free collection of articles and quizzes available on the Language Portal of Canada. Frances lives in Vancouver, where she’s a partner with West Coast Editorial Associates and teaches at Douglas College and the University of British Columbia.

Light breakfast, hot beverages, and lunch are included in the registration price.

Parking available for $25/day at the Matrix Hotel. Paid street and lot parking is also available in the surrounding area.
