The essentials of English grammar, with a distinctively clear organization and user-friendly language
The acclaimed Understanding English Grammar fosters students’ innate language expertise as they study sentence grammar. It offers a practical blend of the most useful elements of both traditional and new linguistic grammar, beginning with an overview of English as a world language, language change, and various classroom issues associated with prescriptive grammar and correctness, along with an updated list of further readings. Every discussion is viewed through the eyes of a novice reader, bearing in mind how the current generation of students uses communication tools for social purposes. Both students and teachers appreciate the self-teaching quality that incremental exercises provide throughout the chapters, with answers at the end of the book.
The Tenth Edition introduces new coauthors Loretta Gray and Joseph Salvatore—two respected scholars who bring their special expertise in linguistics and creative writing, as well as long experience in teaching grammar and writing.
