Writing in response to an observed need for a short, simplified summary of traditional (or classical) grammar, Jewell A. Friend in this exceptionally lucid presentation dispels many of the mysteries and misconceptions surround­ing a complex subject. The book provides students with a thorough grounding for further inquiry into modern descrip­tive linguistic analysis of present-day American English, and makes clear the distinctions between the typical schoolroom grammars” and the scientifically developed methodologies of the classical linguists.

 

Dividing her analysis into two main parts, Ms. Friend provides a brief description of classical grammar and an explanation of the traditionalist concepts of meaning, sen­tence types, and clauses. In the second part, she gives descriptions of nouns, verbs, pronouns, adjectives, adverbs, articles, and conjunctions. Numerous examples and exer­cises to test the student’s grasp of the material presented are included throughout, and an exceptionally detailed glossary of linguistic terms is furnished.

 

This brief volume which concisely presents the principles of traditional grammar will prove especially useful both as text and reference to students and teachers.
