English Parts of SpeechSince the present textbook is meant for students of English and prospective teachers of English, its aim is to provide an account of English morphology which would be both founded on theory and also applicable in practice. To meet both the academic and the practical demands, we based our text on the systemic approach as offered by R. Quirk and S. Greenbaum in their University Grammar of English, and supplemented it by drawing on less academic, but more practical grammars
Each topic is addressed in a problem-oriented manner, with specific mistakes demonstrated by sample sentences taken from actual papers (and appropriately altered to clearly illuminate the problem under consideration). The examples consisting of these original sentences and their corrected versions form the backbone of each chapter, with the accompanying discussion focused on their elucidation.

По своему объему данный учебник приближается к учебникам нормативной грамматики для языковых вузов. Однако он отличается от них в основном менее подробным теоретическим анализом грамматических явлений, поскольку он предназначается не для подготовки преподавателей английского языка, а для подготовки специалистов, связанных в своей практической работе с английским языком.
