Description

This accessible text comes in two parts: the first section consists of a practical guide on how to understand and use grammar successfully, and the second is an extensive A-Z glossary of grammatical terms. Suitable for both language students and the general reader, it aims to demystify and explain these terms, while giving advice on how to construct sentences. The text includes chapters on sentences and clauses, nouns and pronouns, verbs, clause patterns, adverbials, multiple sentences, and more, plus factboxes and writing tips with examples and explanations of problem topics such as adverb formation. Diagrams break down passages of text, giving explanations on their sentence construction, while glossary terms include conjunctions, the future perfect "tense", the interrogative clause, is/are, the passive voice, the simple aspect, the split infinitive, and the uncountable noun.show more
