A note from Anthony

The Online English Grammar has been one of those projects that started off (way back in 1995!) as a simple text tool to help EFL students with their grammar. Since then it has been an on-going process of updating both the content and design and I have to thank everyone who has helped in that process over the years. Most of all I need to thank the readers who keep on sending me emails pointing out errors, typos and bits and pieces that just ain't right! Eventually, I get around to sorting out these little slips and black holes and I appreciate your emails - they help and have helped to make the grammar one of the most popular reference and learning resources on the Internet for English language.
