Abstract:

A Glossary of English Grammar presents a wide range of terms used to
describe the way the English language is structured. Grammatical terms can
be a problem for students, especially when there are alternative names for
the same thing (for example, 'past tense' and 'preterite'). This book
therefore provides a basic and accessible guide, focusing on the English
language.

Definitions of grammatical terms are given in simple language, with clear
examples, many from authentic texts and spoken sources, showing how they
are used. The terms used in the Comprehensive Grammar of the English
Language are widely seen as standard, and form the basis of grammatical
terminology in this book. At the same time, this glossary does not neglect
other variants of English grammar, such as that of Huddleston and Pullum's
influential Cambridge Grammar of the English Language, whose most important
terms are also covered here.

This book is indispensable for anyone wishing to understand present-day
terminology of English grammar more fully.

Key features
* A handy and easily understandable pocket guide for anyone studying the
structure of the English language
* Supplies numerous cross-references to related terms
* Includes an annotated bibliography with suggestions for further reading.

"Written by one of the world's most distinguished grammarians, this
glossary provides clear and concise definitions of the key terminology of
English grammar."
Professor Bas Aarts, UCL
