Title: Introducing English Grammar, Second Edition
Series Title: A Hodder Arnold Publication
Description:

Answering key questions such 'Why study grammar?' and 'What is standard
English?', Introducing English Grammar guides readers through the
practical analysis of the syntax of English sentences.

With all special terms carefully explained as they are introduced, the book
is written for readers with no previous experience of grammatical analysis.
It is ideal for all those beginning their study of linguistics, English
Language, or speech pathology, as well as students with primarily literary
interests who need to cover the basics of linguistic analysis.

The approach taken is in line with current research in grammar, a
particular advantage for students who may go on to study syntax in more
depth. All the examples and exercises use real language taken from
newspaper articles, non-standard dialects and include excerpts from studies
of patients with language difficulties. Students are encouraged to think
about the terminology as a tool kit for studying language and to test what
can and cannot be described using these tools.

This new edition has been fully revised in line with recent research. There
is a new chapter on world English, a new glossary and a free website with
extensive further reading.
