While drawing upon traditional, structural and transformational grammatical theory, the primary purpose of this book is to provide sound pedagogical grammar instruction. Taking an eclectic approach, this effective learning tool is designed to support and assist learning about the structure of English. Unlike similar books, Analyzing English Grammar directly addresses its audience with understandable language and clear explanations. From cover to cover, it models the techniques of step-by-step linguistic analysis that the authors teach in their own classes. Numerous exercises help readers move from mastering clear, prototypical cases toward critical analysis of the more complex and borderline fuzzy grammar examples that characterize actual language. Includes the conventions of Standard English in a context of regional, social, and stylistic variation. Grammatical concepts are applied to practical writing problems. For anyone interested in advanced English grammar.
