Synopsis: The Structure of Modern English is an extensive introduction to all aspects of Modern English structure, including:
Phonology
Morphology
Lexical and sentence semantics
Syntax
Pragmatics

This text is for advanced undergraduate (and graduate) students interested in contemporary English, especially those whose primary area of interest is English as a second language, primary or secondary-school education, English stylistics, theoretical and applied linguistics, or speech pathology. Focus is exclusively on English data, providing an empirical explication of the structure of the language, rather than exploring theoretical questions ortheory for theory’s sake. The text does use linguistic theory but presupposes little or no background in linguistics or any particular linguistic predilection.The textbook begins with units on English phonology and morphology, including a full discussion of the grammatical categories of English. A section on lexical semantics follows which examines structural semantics,modal auxiliaries, lexical aspect and related topics. The next section analyzes ― in detail ― English syntax from a broadly generative perspective. Then there is an examination of the interaction of syntax and semantics with respect to thematic roles and event structure. A final section covers the study of information structuring, speech act theory, and conversational maxims.
Accompanying the text is a pedagogically useful CD-ROM that is a complete workbook with numerous self-testing exercises. Additionally, the CD presents suggestions for pedagogical applications of the material in the textbook in a teachers section.
