Based on a problem-solving approach to language, this second edition has been revised and updated throughout. It contains numerous exercises to encourage in undergraduate and A-Level students the practical skills of sentence analysis, and includes a database and exercises that compare the structure of English with other languages. The book focuses on:
* introducing the evidence for sentence structure and revealing its purpose
* teaching the reader how to identify word classes
* using simple tree structures to analyze sentences.
Sentence Structure is part of the Routledge Language Workbooks series, which provides practical introductions to core areas of language study. Language Workbooks can be used for independent study or as part of a taught class.
