Description

English Sentence Analysis: An introductory course is designed as a 10-week course for students of English Language and Literature, Linguistics, or other language related fields. In 10 weeks the student will be proficient in English analysis at sentence, clause and phrase level and have a solid understanding of the traditional terms and concepts of English syntax. This introduction prepares for practical courses in grammar and writing skills and for theoretical courses in syntactic argumentation.
The Course Book provides
sentence structures in clear graphics;
logically structured chapters with Introductions and Summaries;
exercises with quotations and excerpts from English, American and Australian literature and pop songs.


English Sentence Analysis: An introductory course has been classroom tested at various universities. The students seem to enjoy the 'dreaded' syntax course and pass rates have gone up significantly from 50 to 70%.
Originally, this book was accompanied by a CD-rom with a Practice Program for Windows. The Practice Program on CD-rom is not updated anymore by its creators and as a result is no longer compatible with current Windows versions. For this reason, we have ceased to include it with the book.
