The Cambridge Handbook of Communication Disorders examines the full range of developmental and acquired communication disorders and provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive guide to the epidemiology, aetiology and clinical features of these disorders.
This groundbreaking undergraduate textbook on modern Standard English
grammar is the first to be based on the revolutionary advances of the
authors' previous work, The Cambridge Grammar of the English Language
(2002). The analyses defended there are outlined here more briefly, in an
engagingly accessible and informal style. Errors of the older tradition of
English grammar are noted and corrected, and the excesses of prescriptive
usage manuals are firmly rebutted in specially highlighted notes that
explain what older authorities have called 'incorrect' and show why those
authorities are mistaken. This book is intended for students in colleges or
universities who have little or no previous background in grammar, and
presupposes no linguistics. It contains exercises, and will provide a basis
for introductions to grammar and courses on the structure of English not
only in linguistics departments but also in English language and literature
departments and schools of education.
