Analyzing the Grammar of English: A Brief Undegraduate Textbook
Georgetown University Press, 2000 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 336 pages
This second edition offers English and linguistics majors, advanced ESOL learners, and future ESOL instructors a descriptive analysis of the indispensable elements of English grammar. Written for the average American undergraduate and designed to be covered in one semester, this book starts from scratch and takes nothing for granted beyond a reading and speaking knowledge of English (at the advanced level on the OPI scale). It includes frequently interspersed tear-out exercises which promptly test what is taught.
This new edition has been updated for the contemporary student and includes revised explanations of case and complementation, among other changes.
