Meaning and the English Verb
Since its publication in 1971, Meaning and the English Language has established itself as a standard textbook for studies in English Language. It deals with areas of the language that are of particular interest in themselves and which are especially difficult for learners to master: tense, progressive and perfect aspects, mood and the modal auxiliaries.
There are numerous examples of differences and similarities in meaning throughout the book, making it a clear and precise guide to English. Updated for the language of the 21st Century, this edition will prove invaluable for learners and teachers alike.
