Throughout the text, Exploration Activities lead the students to discover how the language works. Many examples are taken from real-world sources, enhancing the natural, conversational tone. The descriptive theory used in the text is clear, understandable, and easily accessible to a general, nonspecialist audience. While using modern linguistic theory as its primary descriptive framework, English Grammar: Structure and Theme thoroughly respects traditional grammatical descriptions. Traditional interpretations are presented along with more current theory, in order to assist students in making the transition from one descriptive framework to another, and to help them understand the rationale behind traditional rules. Consequently, this text will be especially useful for students whose only exposure to English grammar has been minimal. The Instructors Exercise Book provides exam questions, plus complete model answers for all exercises. English Grammar: Structure and Theme is an ideal choice for anyone who wants to learn more about language or modern linguistic theory, but who finds most technical linguistic texts daunting. It will be of value to language teachers, technical writers, and nonspecialists who want a general introduction to contemporary English grammar.
