Listed below are links to weblogs that reference good grammar links:

Comments

Although I may be guilty of overkill, here are links to two other well-done grammar sites maintained for undergraduates at Oregon University and Towson University:
http://grammar.uoregon.edu/toc.html
http://wwwnew.towson.edu/ows/index.htm
The Oregon site has good exercises, and the Towson site has great diagrams.
Also, for a good rundown of rhetorical devices, consider the following link maintained by Robert A. Harris:
http://www.virtualsalt.com/rhetoric.htm
He has a nice workbook (Writing with Clarity and Style) on the same subject:
http://www.virtualsalt.com/rhetoric.htm

I have no stake, financial or otherwise, in any of these.
