About this title


The Structure of English for Readers, Writers, and Teachers, Second Edition, is a survey of the grammar of English (our pronunciation, our spelling system, and the structure of our words, phrases, and sentences), with attention, also, to dialect variation and the adjustments we make in our language as we move from one social situation to another. The grammatical analysis is couched within the framework of contemporary linguistic theory, but in a non-technical, very accessible form. As in the first edition, applications are made at every point to issues of interest to writers, students of literature, and teachers of language arts; however, this second edition hs been expanded to also include information and applications for teachers and students of English as a second language. In the many exercises that are provided in each chapter, readers are invited to apply grammatical concepts to the analysis of a literary passage, the speech or writing of a child, the language of an English learner, or the reader's own prose. This is an ideal text for undergraduate students of English literature or composition or for pre-service teachers of English as a first or second language.
