An Introduction to English Grammar

Sidney Greenbaum and Gerald Nelson

 

 

English language and its usage have become increasingly emotive issues in recent years, and there is a growing demand for a return to the study of English grammar after decades of neglect. 

 

 An Introduction to English Grammar provides a comprehensive overview of all aspects of English grammar, and can be used in the classroom, for self-study, or as a reference book.  Organised in two parts - on grammar and its applications - the Introduction provides everything a student needs to get to grips with the theory and the practice of English usage, including sections on style, punctuation and spelling.

 

Now in its third edition, An Introduction to English Grammar has been fully revised and updated to include:

-         An expanded section on English in Use, covering spoken and written English, text messages and chatroom English

-         ‘Usage Notes’ throughout the text highlighting common errors in usage

-         Updated end-of-chapter exercises

-         A companion website providing further exercises at varying levels of difficulty

-         A user-friendly glossary

 

Clearly written with the first-time grammar student in mind, An Introduction to English Grammar will be of immense value to anyone interested in the English language.

 

The late Sidney Greenbaum was Director of the Survey of English Usage and formerly Quain Professor of English Language and Literature, University College London.
