Special Tools that Facilitate Expression

by J. Conrad Seegers, Paul McKee, Ethel Mabie Falk, Mildred A. Dawson, Helen Heffernan, Angela M. Broening, Louise Abney & M. R. Trabue - 1944

The title of this chapter indicates the point of view of the yearbook committee toward such matters as spelling, handwriting, grammar, and punctuation. Mastery of such tools is very important to a speaker or writer because it helps to free his mind of fears that his message may not be clearly understood or that errors in the expression of his message may cause his hearers or readers to doubt the competence of the author and therefore to attach little or no importance to what he is trying to say.
