New Edition

First published in 1970, this book examines the traditional grammar, very
briefly for its Greek and Latin origins, and fully during its first two hundred
years as 'English' grammar. It asks when the application of Latin grammar to
English was made; how far it was made knowingly; whether anyone protested
that English needed a a grammar of its own. The two hundred and seventy-
two English grammars known up to 1800 are studied. Dr Michael shows that
the old grammatical tradition is much less unanimous and authoritative than
is often supposed, and describes a previously unknown movement to reform
English grammar and make it more suited to English, which was expressed in
about forty grammars during the first half of the eighteenth century. The book
also provides much evidence about the relation between logic and language,
especially in making definitions, and about methods of teaching during the
seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
