The Finite English Verb Group
A Working Book

Majzoub R. Omer & Ayisha H. Mohamed

The Finite English Verb Group is primarily intended for ESL/EFL
teachers of English as well as undergraduate university students of
English grammar. The text is unique in its approach, combining
detailed, comprehensive discussion of theoretical concepts with
practical applications. Its main defining features are:

* It identifies and defines the major categories and sub-categories of
 meanings/forms in the finite English verb group.
* It shows the different ways in which the meanings/forms can be
 combined in the finite English verb group.
* It contains hundreds of examples, tables, figures, and diagrams which
 serve to illustrate and explain the different theoretical concepts
* It contains a large number of exercises which are meant to provide
 intensive practice for the book user.
* It contains an answer key to the questions in the exercises whose
 purpose is to provide a reference point as needed. In this way, the book
 is useful for self-study undertaken by advanced students and teachers of
 English grammar.
Dr. Majzoub R. Omer is Assistant Professor of Applied Linguistics at
the College of Women Education, Tabuk, Saudi Arabia. Dr. Ayisha H.
Mohamed is Assistant Professor of Applied Linguistics at the Police
Training College, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
