Editor's Note: This book is the revision of a previously announced book.

It has been eight years since An Introduction to the Grammar of
was first published. The second edition is completely revised
and greatly expanded, especially where texts, example sentences, exercises,
and cartoons are concerned. It continues to provide a very lively and
clearly written textbook. The book introduces basic concepts of grammar in
a format which inspires the reader to use linguistic arguments. The style
of the book is engaging and examples from poetry, jokes, and puns
illustrate grammatical concepts. The focus is on syntactic analysis and
evidence. However, special topic sections contribute sociolinguistic and
historical reasons behind prescriptive rules such as the bans on split
infinitives, dangling participles, and preposition stranding. The book is
written for undergraduate students and structured for a semester-long
course. It provides exercises, keys to those exercises, and sample exams.
It also includes a comprehensive glossary. A basic website will be kept up
at: http://www.public.asu.edu/~gelderen/grammar.htm.
