9780199658237: The Oxford Dictionary of English Grammar (Oxford Quick Reference)

The Oxford Dictionary of English Grammar is a straightforward and accessible A-Z guide of the diverse and often complex terminology of English grammar. It contains over 1,600 entries with clear and concise definitions, enhanced by numerous sample sentences, as well as relevant quotations from the scholarly literature of the field.

This second edition is written and edited by Professor Bas Aarts of University College London, writer of the acclaimed Oxford Modern English Grammar. It has been fully revised and updated, with particular attention paid to refreshing the sample sentences included within the text. There are over 150 new entries that cover current terminology which has arisen since the publication of the first edition, and there are new entries on the most important English grammars published since the start of the 20th century. Hundreds of new cross-references enhance the user-friendly nature of the text, and the list of works cited has been thoroughly updated to reflect the current state of the field. A short appendix of web links has been added.
