Message 2: Book query

Date: Wed, 01 Nov 1995 12:59:07 Book query
From: Johanna Rubba <jrubbaharp.aix.calpoly.edu>
Subject: Book query


Hello all,

I'm writing to ask for some impromptu book reviews. I'm hung up trying to
decide between two texts to use for a course called 'Modern English
Grammar' (a structure-of-American-English type course for, mainly,
undergraduate English majors; it's a ten-week course).

The books in question are Mary Sedley's 'Anatomy of English' and Jeff
Kaplan's 'English Grammar: Principles & Facts'.

If anyone uses or has used these books and has comments, I'd be very
appreciative. I can post a summary to the list, if people ask for that.
I'm interested in knowing how successful either book is, and any problems
that might arise with it (especially in such a short term of instruction).

Thanks!
