Part One: Varieties of English , looks at the way English grammar varies in different types of English, for example 'formal' and 'informal', 'spoken' and 'written'. Part Two: Intonation. Part Three: Grammar in use - the central and largest part of the book, presents grammar through the eyes of the communicator and focuses on the uses of grammar rather than on grammatical structure. Part Four: Grammatical Compendium - provides a useful and alphabetically arranged guide to English grammar.
