More about the book
About the book
A Handbook of English Grammar aims at imparting the grammatical facts as well as an awareness of linguistic structure. It is organized according to linguistic structure, and yet has all the detailed information of a reference book. Explicit clause and phrase analyses are employed throughout. A structure-function handbook, it also introduces a number of concepts important to communicative language teaching.
Bent Preisler has written a grammar text that stimulates the student's interest in grammar by providing options explained in semantic and pragmatic terms. It is intended for advanced students, whether native speakers or foreign learners. It works well with both British and American English and differences are pointed out systematically and explicitly.
