Introducing English Grammar

introduces readers to the methodology and terminology needed to analyse English sentences. The approach taken is in line with current research in grammar, a particular advantage for students who may go on to study syntax in more depth. All the examples and exercises use real language taken from both standard and non-standard geographical areas and dialects, and include excerpts from Australian and British newspaper articles. Students are encouraged to think about the terminology as a tool kit for studying language and to test what can and cannot be described using these tools.

This new edition has been fully updated and features:

an expanded introduction;

new texts and exercises that include data from social media;

revised material on 'Grammar at work' and 'English worldwide';

more suggestions for further reading at the end of the book;

updated online resources with extensive further reading and answers to the exercises, which can be found at https: //

Written for readers with no previous experience of grammatical analysis, Introducing English Grammar is suited to anyone beginning a study of linguistics, English language or speech pathology, as well as to students whose interests are primarily literary but who need a better understanding of the structure of English.
