Title: Modern English Grammar
Subtitle: Structure, Meanings, and Usage
Written By: K.S. Yadurajan
Description:

Authoritative, comprehensive, and definitive, this book takes a fresh look at how the English language works in the Indian context. Broadly divided into two parts-'The Parts of Speech' and 'Sentence Structure'-the volume illustrates critical components of modern English grammar: finite and non-finite verb, gerunds and the infinitive, different kinds of clauses, tense, active and passive voice, punctuation, phrasal verbs, etc. Setting the context for later discussion, the Introduction dwells on the study of grammar, the parts of speech, units of structure, and functions in the sentences. The book devotes special attention to clarify concepts, constructions, and usages, with each chapter providing considerable examples to illustrate the issues discussed and exercises to test students' understanding. The focus remains on guiding anybody to construct grammatically correct sentences and develop the ability to think analytically and arrive at significant conclusions. In addition, the book includes two 'Appendices' on word formation and irregular verbs.
