The study of language in written texts and transcripts of speech is greatly helped by a student's abilityBB to identify and describe those prominent features of the grammar which make one variety of English different from another. A Course Book in English Grammar looks at many of the problems encountered by students and encourages them to find their own answers and to assess hypotheses about grammatical description. There are activities at each step, using authentic written and spoken data. Using 'real' texts avoids the faking of evidence to be found in some traditional grammar books, and interesting problems of analysis that arise in such texts are a source of useful discussion. The book has been thoroughly revised and expanded for this second edition, which contains additional chapters and material. A new opening chapter discusses the concept of 'grammatically correct English' and the differences between descriptive, prescriptive and proscriptive approaches to the writing of grammar books. The book is a systematic description of Standard English, and examples of contemporary spoken dialectal grammar are introduced and analysed to illustrate the differences between standard and nonstandard usage. A Course Book in English Grammar will prove invaluable to all students of English Language.

This book aims at helping learners of English (particularly those whose first language is Chinese) to improve their understanding of, and their competence in, English grammar. It directly addresses the needs of Chinese learners and takes full account of their first language in helping them understand how English works by systematically requiring them to think about grammar, and to come up with their own hypotheses about how it works on the basis of the given data. The book is designed for students' learning on their own as well as in a classroom. Each chapter is accompanied by a separate 'students' notes', which the students can consult after working through all the data and exercises in each chapter, to check their own answers and to read further explanations on the grammatical points in question. This book therefore appeals to the growing number of students learning through self-access, as well as promotes independent learning among those enrolled in educational institutions. Key features: - Directly addresses the needs of Chinese learners of English - Concise, user-friendly grammar presentations followed by examples of correct use - Innovative exercises offering learners in-depth practice of key grammar points - Detailed students' notes section and a full answer key for easy reference - Suitable for use in class, or for self-study

Best English Grammar Book Learn English Grammar in Two Week (Revised Edition) Adjective of English Grammar 2 Minute Grammar class This book was begun as a result of the author's experience in teaching some classes in English in the night preparatory department of the Carnegie Technical Schools of Pittsburg. The pupils in those classes were all adults and needed only such a course as would enable them to express themselves in clear and correct English. English Grammar, with them, was not to be preliminary to the grammar of another language, and composition was not to be studied beyond the everyday needs of the practical man. Best English Grammar Book Learn English Grammar in Two Week (Revised Edition) Adjective of English Grammar 2 Minute Grammar class Great difficulty was experienced because of the inability to secure a text that was suited to the needs of the class. A book was needed that would be simple, direct, and dignified; that would cover grammar, and the essential principles of sentence structure, choice of words, and general composition; that would deal particularly with the sources of frequent error, and would omit the non-essential points; and, finally that would contain an abundance of exercises and practical work. Best English Grammar Book Learn English Grammar in Two Week (Revised Edition) Adjective of English Grammar 2 Minute Grammar class It is with these ends in view that this book has been prepared. The parts devoted to grammar have followed a plan varying widely from that of most grammars, and an effort has been made to secure a more sensible and effective treatment. The parts devoted to composition contain brief expositions of only the essential principles of ordinary composition. Especial stress has been laid upon letter-writing since this is believed to be one of the most practical fields for actual composition work. Because such a style seemed best suited to the general scheme and purpose of the book, the method of treatment has at times been intentionally rather formal.

Fachbuch aus dem Jahr 2021 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Sonstiges, , Veranstaltung: English for General Purpose, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: This is a self-study book intended to help contextualize English grammar structures. Learning grammar in context is more important as a language is learned for communication purposes. This book contains twenty-seven units. Each unit tackles a particular grammar structure. Not all grammar structures are handled. Based on the author’s teaching experience, the structures under discussion were deemed more important than others. They were selected, responding to students’ needs (students as second language learners) suiting the teaching to their needs. Those grammar structures are contextualized in self-created dialogues and examples bank (different sentences or passages from other scholars’ works). Each unit is subdivided into different activities. Some units have more activities than others, depending on their weight. But no unit counts less than three activities. The first common activity is about reading self-created dialogues to learn about how a given grammar structure is used in context. The second common activity is about perusing different sentences and passages from other scholars’ publications. The example banks serve as a proof to the reader that it is not only the writer who used the structures in context, but also many other researchers. It also ensures the reader that there is no difference between the way the writer uses the structures and other scholars. Furthermore, the example banks motivate students to learn English alongside with other subjects, bearing in mind that they cannot fully grasp the subjects they are doing in English without mastering general English. The last common activity is about using the same structure in the reader’s own texts. After reading through writer’s dialogues, and then perusing examples bank to see how other scholars used a given grammar structure, the reader can produce his/her own texts to check her/his understanding of the structure under discussion.

Written by a team led by a world authority in English grammar, English Grammar for Today has established itself as a rich educational experience for both native- and non-native-speaking students. This engaging and stimulating coursebook enables students to learn grammar not just for its own sake, but also for the pleasure of exploring, appreciating and understanding the way language communicates in written text and spoken discourse. Throughout, the emphasis is on using grammar in present-day English. After an introduction placing grammar in its educational and cultural context, the authors present a 'toolkit' for analysing sentences. The second part of the book demonstrates how to apply this toolkit to spoken and written language, using a wide range of real textual materials. Each chapter ends with a set of carefully-designed exercises and tasks to aid understanding, with answers provided at the end of the volume. Now thoroughly revised and updated to meet the needs of today's students, this new edition features: - a new Foreword by the English Association - an additional introductory chapter, 'Getting Started with Grammar', which introduces the subject for those with no prior knowledge - improved and extended diagrams, exercises and answers - up-to-date textual passages and examples Lively and approachable, this indispensable guide is ideal for both students and teachers who are looking for their first serious engagement with - or wishing to rediscover- English grammar.
