    What are some great books, hubs, and resources to thoroughly learn English grammar?

    I have always read quite a bit, and I get most of my general knowledge on grammar from there. I mostly copy the forms of what I read. I'm a little ashamed to say I couldn't explain a lot of basic grammar in technical terms. Thank you!

    Eats, Shoots, and Leaves is a popular book for grammar, and a professor of mine once suggested The Chicago Manual of Style, which supposedly includes everything you could ever need.
    As for websites, try:

    Banal "Advanced Grammar in use" by Cambridge University press. Covers pretty interesting material and has all important information and reference which is applicable for day-to-day use. And also contains a wide range of useful exercises you may find useful for consolidating what you have already read and learned

    David Crystal's 'The Cambridge Encyclopedia of the English Language' is a great book for grammar, it really goes into detail and Crystal is a smart and witty writer.
