Book Information


Title: Understanding English Grammar
Subtitle: A Linguistic Approach - Second Edition
Written By: Ronald Wardhaugh

Understanding English Grammar presents the essentials of English structure comprehensibly to students who have had little or no opportunity to study the language, and does so within a framework derived from modern linguistic theory. Students, however, require no previous knowledge of linguistics. Through use of this book, students will gain an understanding of what is involved in the scholarly study of language and, while doing so, acquire a considerable knowledge of English grammar.
