In The Press

'… an excellent self-study and reference guide for readers with little or no specialised knowledge of linguistics, but an interest in basic issues of the structure of English. It is specifically designed for readers who suffer from 'grammatophobia', (a fear of grammar), and offers accessible and sound information while keeping the technical jargon to a minimum.' Monika S. Schmid, University of Groningen
