Understanding English Grammar presents a linguistic introduction to
the structure of English that is accessible to students who have had
little or no opportunity to study the language. The book features
information about the essentials of English words, sentences, and
sounds within a framework derived from modern linguistic theory. The
volume also provides students with an introduction to the scholarly
study of language and a comprehensive exploration of English grammar.

Understanding English Grammar is designed as a teaching tool; there
are numerous exercises at the end of each chapter, a list of further
readings, and an indexed glossary. This second edition has been
updated throughout with additional examples and enhanced discussion,
as well as an increased emphasis on the study of meaning.

The book is supported by an online instructor's manual available at:

Lingfield(s): General Linguistics
Subject Language(s): English (Language code: ENG)

Written In: English (Language Code: ENG)
