Product Description

An understanding of grammar enables us to see how language works and how to use it in the right ways. This clear, succinct, and up-to-date dictionary, which covers virtually every significant grammatical term, is ideal for teachers, students, and anyone who wants to write correctly (without sounding old-fashioned or fussily pedantic). Gives crisp, practical definitions of all the central concepts and their application: from abstract nouns and adverbs to word order and yes-no question Offers authoritative guidance through the minefield of more technical terms (and those mainly applicable to other languages): accusative, attraction, backshift, common gender, dummy

Provides extensive coverage of recent innovations and the ideas introduced by leading scholars such as Noam Chomsky and Randolph Quirk: complement clause, noun phrase, subject raising Includes lively examples of current usage.
