From the Back Cover:

The Longman Grammar of Spoken and Written English is a revolutionary, corpus-based reference grammar of English, based on a groundbreaking research project to analyze the ways in which English grammar is really used.

  • Encompasses a six-year research project into the ways in which language is really used.
  • Reveals which structures, tenses, and lexical choices occur, and how their distribution differs in different text types.
  • Analyzes natural language in each chapter, based on analysis of the real everyday conversations in the Longman Spoken American Corpus and the British National Corpus.
  • Contains over 350 tables and graphs that show the frequency of constructions across different registers, from conversation to fiction to academic prose.
