A Student's Introduction to English Grammar

A Student's Introduction to English Grammar

Rodney Huddleston, Geoffrey K. Pullum

312 pages, parution le 17/02/2005


This groundbreaking undergraduate textbook on modern Standard English grammar is the first to be based on the revolutionary advances of the authors' previous work, The Cambridge Grammar of the English Language (2002). The analyses defended there are outlined here more briefly, in an engagingly accessible and informal style. Errors of the older tradition of English grammar are noted and corrected, and the excesses of prescriptive usage manuals are firmly rebutted in specially highlighted notes that explain what older authorities have called 'incorrect' and show why those authorities are mistaken. This book is intended for students in colleges or universities who have little or no previous background in grammar, and presupposes no linguistics. It contains exercises, and will provide a basis for introductions to grammar and courses on the structure of English not only in linguistics departments but also in English language and literature departments and schools of education.

  • Written specifically for undergraduate course use in a clear, engaging style, with features including exercises, glossary, bullet-points, boxed notes, and web support
  • A true 21st-century grammar: breaks with the confused analyses often repeated in the past, making the subject more intelligible and easier to learn
  • Based on the authors' previous monumental and authoritative reference grammar that won the prestigious Bloomfield Book Award of the Linguistic Society of America in 2004
