Description

"The Uses of Grammar" is designed for courses in advanced grammar offered in English and Lingusitics departments. The course is often required of English majors and is almost universally required for education majors. The text is an eclectic and accessible approach to grammar that will appeal not only to future teachers, but also to students who are concerned about correctness in their own writing. Unlike other grammar texts, which are typically organized from parts of speech to phrases to sentences, this text emphasizes how various forms can have the same functions. It integrates structural principles with those of universal (i.e., transformational, generative, or transformational-generative) grammar, thus presenting an introduction to the concepts and methods of modern linguistics.show more
