Doing Grammar, now in its third edition, is well known for the solid grounding it gives students in rigorous grammatical analysis of the structure of English. Using sentences from real life and tree diagrams, the text prepares students to be able to explain grammar. Each chapter is provided with extensive exercises, for most of which answers are provided at the back of the book so that students can perform self-evaluations.
