Abstract: 

Grammar is central to language pedagogy and teachers need a clear 
description of what constitutes grammar and how it can best be taught 
in the English language classroom. This book illustrates a new way of 
describing the grammar of spoken and written English. In an accessible 
style, the author demonstrates how lexical phrases, frames and 
patterns provide a link between grammar and vocabulary. He also 
discusses how the different aspects of the language require different 
learning processes and different teaching techniques. These processes 
and techniques are contextualised within a task-based approach to 
teaching and learning. Numerous interactive tasks are provided to 
guide readers and over forty examples of teaching exercises are 
included to illustrate techniques which can be applied in the 
classroom immediately.

Abstract: 

This book, by one of the leading figures in applied linguists, 
provides a wide-ranging and comprehensive treatment of the major 
issues in applied linguistics. Its six chapters take the reader 
through the major tenets and debates in the field and are essential 
reading for anyone involved in applied linguistics and language 
teaching today. It outlines the historical roots of the field and its 
major developments over the years, and examines current issues such as 
language modelling and the analysis of discourse. While not neglecting 
theory, the book takes a practical approach and language teachers, as 
well as university level students, will find it a useful read.
