About this item

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 newspaper articles, non-standard dialects and include excerpts from studies of patients with language difficulties. 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';
    • a new discussion on recent developments in the study of noun phrase and clausal structure;
    • the 'References and further reading' section at the end of the book has been expanded;
    • a brand-new companion website with extensive further reading and answers to the exercises, which can be found at www.routledge.com/cw/borjars.

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 with primary literary interests who need a better understanding of the structure of English.
