Book Information

   

Title: The Sentence in Written English
Subtitle: A Syntactic Study Based on an Analysis of Scientific Texts
Written By: Rodney D. Huddleston
Series Title: Cambridge Studies in Linguistics 3
Description:

Note: This is the re-issue of a previously published book.

A substantially revised edition of Huddleston's contribution to Sentence
and Clause in Scientific English, the final report of a research project
into the linguistic properties of scientific English carried out at
University College London in 1964–7. The book has two complementary aims:
to analyze certain areas of the grammar of 'common-core' English - the
grammar that is common to all varieties of the language - and to apply this
analysis to a selective grammatical description of a corpus of some 135,000
words of written scientific English. The theoretical framework underlying
the description is that of transformational grammar but the author also
draws heavily on M. A. K. Halliday's work on English grammar. Full details
of the corpus are given in the appendix. The texts are arranged in three
levels, high, middle and low, according to the audience addressed by the
author - scholarly, student and general/popular.
