English Grammar for Today: A New Introduction

Front Cover
Macmillan Education UK, Oct 17, 2005 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 256 pages
Written by a team led by a world authority in English grammar, English Grammar for Today has established itself as a rich educational experience for both native- and non-native-speaking students. After an introduction placing grammar in its educational and cultural context, the book offers a thorough but accessible 6-chapter introduction to grammar which is then applied, in remaining chapters, to a wide range of subjects involving textual analysis. This new edition has been thoroughly updated with additional introductory material and extended diagrams, exercises and answers.
