The first section addresses grammatical analysis, covering Chomskyan Universal Grammar and a number of alternative models. The second section shows how lexicon and discourse rules interact with and influence the grammatical system. A final section deals directly with applications, outlining effective methods of teaching grammar in different areas of the language curriculum.show more

Review quote

'Overall, this volume should do much to raise the consciousness of teachers regarding possibilities for improved language teaching.' QATESOL Newsletter No.2, 1995 'My own opinion is that, provided potential readers have experience with one half of the title - that is, either they are already teachers or they have a strong theoretical knowledge of grammar - this book will be not only accesible but informative and thought provoking.' VATME Newsletter, no.56, 1995 - Review Special '... appeal to readers who want to extend that limited knowledge; and, as befits the workd 'pedagogical' in its title, the contributors work hard to make their topics comprehensible. Provided potential readers have experience with on half of the title - that is, either they are already teachers or they have a strong theoretical knowledge of grammar - this book will be not only accessible but informative and thought provoking.'
