***THE BOOK FOR ENGLISH TEACHERS AND OTHERS WHO NEED TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE; NOW AVAILABLE IN KINDLE FORMAT FOR EASY WORLDWIDE ACCESS *** This book was and still is for teachers of English who require further knowledge about how English is structured and used worldwide in the 21st C. It is a revision of John Miller Dow Meiklejohn's original 1886 edition, newly re-edited for teachers of English worldwide in the same way the original was prepared for novice English teachers in the late 19th C. The book helps with many important tasks, including: - a complete listing of the English language tenses in both the active and passive voice; - definitions provided of grammatical terms with explanations throughout the book at the time they're needed; - excerpts taken from English literature to demonstrate rules of English grammar; - observation of the same patterns of speech shown in other languages which may have been studied; and - more familiarity with English sayings and expressions. There is also cross-referencing of difficult terms so that students can re-learn terms when they reappear. (The paperback accomplishes this feature with embedded footnotes while the Kindle version uses an easy highlight click-and-return process.) Teachers become familiar with the "writing process", learning how to guide students to develop clearly written English sentences, paragraphs, essays and reports. The book concludes with fifty pages of meaningful exercises, each of them indexed to the English language lesson from which they originate, so as to allow immediate review . "The English Language: Its Grammar, History and Literature"(1886) was a book which had widespread popularity among newly trained teachers all over the world in the 19th and early 20th C. whose knowledge of English was incomplete. The book reached over thirty-five editions in the British Isles, the British Commonwealth and the United States. It was the preferred text for student teachers for its understated tone and approach to English instruction. I have revised and re-edited the book and, in addition to using it in my own classes and now presenting it on Amazon Books, I have also created a web site to advertise and market it: www.jmdmrevision.com. I hope you find it useful in learning more about one of Britain's early educators - Fraser McKen

About the Author:

In 1854 at the age of twenty-four, John Miller Dow Meiklejohn translated Immanuel Kant’s "Critique of Pure Reason" into English and it would remain the standard translation for many years. However, it was in another area of Victorian writing that Meiklejohn’s name would become celebrated. He wrote and published the most comprehensive set of schoolbooks, lesson materials and instructional texts for schoolmasters yet seen in an English-speaking classroom. Foremost and longest lasting among those books was "The English Language: its Grammar, History and Literature" (1886), which reached over thirty editions in Britain, the U.S.A. and the British Commonwealth. This revised edition marks the 125th anniversary of its first publication by Blackwood and Sons in London. The book was intended to provide novice teachers with a more complete understanding of the English Language. From this book they could then create their own lessons for their own students. Modern teachers of English worldwide have a similar requirement and it is the aim of this modern edition of the book to help them obtain it.

Book Description Createspace. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 324 pages. Dimensions: 10.9in. x 8.4in. x 0.9in.Professor Meiklejohns Grammar and History of the English Language Revised and re-edited by Fraser McKen (2012) -NOTE: A free, abbreviated version of this book in . pdf is downloadable at www. jmdmrevision. com The original volume - The English Language: Its Grammar, History and Literature (1886) - had widespread popularity, reaching over thirty-five editions in the British Isles, the British Commonwealth and the United States. Since I believe that teachers of English in the 21st C. have the same interest and curiosity about the starting principles of English instruction, I have revised and re-edited this book and, in addition to presenting it on Amazon Books, I have also created a web site to advertise and market it: www. jmdmrevision. com. The web site offers a free, downloadable . pdf version of the new book, including introduction, a table of contents, a description of the original author and highlight passages of the revised text. My edition of Professor Meiklejohns Grammar and History of the English Language (2012) is designed as a source text for both new teachers of English and practising classroom teachers. To start with, there is a section on English grammar which includes explanations of the origin and application of terms currently used - as well as clear examples of grammatical values, most of them taken directly from English Literature. There two indexes, one at the beginning of the book and, for easy review of the terms newly introduced to most readers, another index at the end of the grammar section. There is also extensive cross-referencing of grammatical terms such that they can be learned again, if necessary, as the reader proceeds. After the grammar section is a section on word-branching. Here Professor Meiklejohn describes how individual words have been used to form new words in English, a process which has continued for 1500 years, incorporating root words, prefixes and suffixes in common from Ancient Greek, Latin, French and Old English into the 800, 000 words we use today. Part II is a section on composition, highlighting the modern method of instruction known as The Writing Process. The Writing Process teaches accuracy of word selection, systematic review of and editing of drafts, logical presentation of ideas, standard punctuation and the lesser known and taught art of prosody (or verse). The Writing Process represents the most successful advance in writing and speaking skills development to have taken place in modern English language classrooms. The contents of this book offer a platform for its delivery. Part III is Professor Meiklejohns original History of the English Language. He outlines here in five chapters The Periods of the English Language, The History of English Vocabulary, The History of English Grammar, Specimens Of Written English From Different Periods and a final chapter on the English of his own era, The Victorian Age. He concludes this history of English with the landmark events in the development of the English Language which extend from from Beowulf to Lord Tennyson. Part IV, the final section, provides a set of grammatical exercises and corrections indexed to their instructional pages. In retirement now from my own career as a teacher of secondary school English in Canada with the Toronto District School Board, and with time and facilities available to me for self-publishing, I am making available, for teachers and student teachers of English worldwide, my own re-edition of Professor Meiklejohns very successful instructional book of the late 1800s and early 20th C. I believe his book still has useful work to do and that, either as student or teacher of English, youll agree. - Fraser McKen This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Paperback.
