suitable English grammar, basics

Post by banofimagefan » Wed Jun 06, 2018 4:39 pm

Hi everybody,
did not go to grammar school, little joke :mrgreen:
but grown from the experience of the ancient Greek basics search the question came up -as this is a ancient Greek-E N G L I S H case to fully take part in-
if somebody could recommend any resources, public domain, of a grammar or dictionary, for to learn from and to refer to.
Mainly same question as below, but done for English.
And little note to the offtopic topic: No, I do not regard this question off-topic. Surely I could ask this question somewhere else, too, and would, but could then receive rejection with the same right.

So thanks in advance. Any hints, even hints, where or how to search, are appreciated.

Fair question, but I'm going to move this thread to the Open Forum.

Thanks for that, any how valuable a hint. Even so I am still looking for public domain resources, maybe next to or near to that.

not open source but a lot cheaper, at 18 USD, than the previous post and quite an enjoyable read:
