"This is a well-organized and down-to-earth book. It will help anyone in search of an introduction to grammatical analysis and to the main patterns of English grammar. It is informative without being daunting." Richard Hudson, University College London "Its purpose is clear; to provide undergraduates with a university-level introduction to English grammar; and it succeeds impressively in its two aims. Two strengths are evident throughout: clear explanations and useful examples." Terence Odlin, Ohio State University
