This clear and concise introduction offers students of linguistics and English language a comprehensive overview of English grammar, including word structure, major and minor word classes, phrases, clauses and sentences. Based on twenty years' teaching practice, Louise Cummings adopts a unique approach of using three real-world contexts - first language acquisition, language disorders and non-standard dialects - as a pedagogical tool to make grammatical concepts meaningful to students and to improve engagement and understanding. In seven accessible chapters, students are encouraged to develop the analytical skills they require to give a comprehensive description of the grammar of the English language. A range of supportive learning aids is used, including: • Learning objectives and section 'key points' summaries • Varied examples from world Englishes and print media • Homework assignments, exercises and revision questions • Targeted further reading suggestions and 'special topics' boxes • A glossary of 300 entries • An extensive range of online resources for instructors and students, including a test bank of 140 multiple-choice questions, useful links and an answer key.
