Analyzing the Grammar of English


"A text that is simply and clearly explained while at the same time presenting the full complexity of the essential structures of English." Rebecca Babcock, University of Texas of the Permian Basin

Thanks to ildi

Analyzing the Grammar of English offers a descriptive analysis of the indispensable elements of English grammar. Designed to be covered in one semester, this textbook starts from scratch and takes nothing for granted beyond a reading and speaking knowledge of English. Extensively revised to function better in skills-building classes, it includes more interspersed exercises that promptly test what is taught, simplified and clarified explanations, greatly expanded and more diverse activities, and a new glossary of over 200 technical terms.

Analyzing the Grammar of English, Third Edition is the only English grammar to view the sentence as a strictly punctuational constuctanything that begins with a capital letter and ends with a period, a question mark, an exclamation mark, or three dotsrather than a syntactic one, and to load, in consequence, all the necessary syntactic analysis onto the clause and its constituents.

It is also one of the very few English grammars to includealongside multiple examples of canonical or "standard" languageoccasional samples of stigmatized speech to illustrate grammar points.

Students and teachers in courses of English grammatical analysis, English teaching methods, TESOL methods, and developmental English will all benefit from this new edition.
