Grammar books

Grammar is the same in all types of English, the biggest difference is in pronunciation.
And American spelling + British spelling.
And in 1 case Australian spelling in the case of "ise" or "ize", American English is always "ize" and "yze", Australian English is always "ise" and "yse", and British English is either of them depending on the word.

Right. Grammar does not change for US, Canadian, Oz, British English, or English in post colonial countries. The basics of grammar remains the same. There is a huge difference in accent, and colloquial language speaking has some phrases and sentences that have a native flavor.

  • Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation by Lynne Truss
  • The Only Grammar Book You’ll Ever Need: A One-Stop Source for Every Writing Assignment by Susan Sommers Thurman
