Excerpt from Harris's Spiral Course in English, Vol. 2: Inductive Lessons in Language and Grammar The sentence, defined as an organization of words expressing a thought, is taken as the unit of language and made the basis of study. The elements of the sentence - words, phrases, and clauses - are treated as organs performing specific functions in the expres sion of thought, and are studied in the performance of these func tions and not as separate, isolated structures. The properties and modifications of words are considered only in their relations to the functions of the words in the expression of thought.
