First Person vs First Person Narrative

Some grammar rules (and embarrassing mistakes!) transcend the uniqueness of different regions and style guides. This new International Grammar section by OnlineBookClub.org ultimately identifies those rules thus providing a simple, flexible rule-set, respecting the differences between regions and style guides. You can feel free to ask general questions about spelling and grammar. You can also provide example sentences for other members to proofread and inform you of any grammar mistakes.

First Person vs First Person Narrative

Post by DavidOchieng »

Is it wrong to describe an author's writing style as written in the "first person narrative" as opposed to just saying "first person"?

I think both are understandable, but the convention my find it correct if we say first person narration.

Maybe "first person" is more acceptable than "first person narrative"
