Summary

"Introducing English Grammar is the ideal book for students beginning the study of grammar and language structure. Using lively examples of real language taken from magazines, newspapers, and non-standard dialects, it guides the reader step-by-step through the syntactic analysis of English sentences. Assuming no previous experience of grammatical analysis, it introduces technical terms gradually, explaining them in the context of specific examples. Students are enabled to absorb the terms painlessly as a 'toolkit' for understanding and discussing language structure. Extensive exercises at the end of each chapter give ample opportunity to practise and consolidate the skills introduced. Written in line with current research in the field of grammar, this book is the perfect launch pad for further language study, but it is also suitable for students who will go on to apply their knowledge in a related field, e.g. stylistics, speech therapy or language teaching."--BOOK JACKET.
