English Grammar: The Basics by Michael McCarthy

    English Grammar: The Basics by Michael McCarthy

    English Grammar: The Basics offers a clear, non-jargonistic introduction to English grammar and its place in society. Rather than taking a prescriptive approach, this book helps the reader become aware of the social implications of choices they make to use standard or non-standard (regional/dialect) forms.

    Readers will consider:

    • what grammar is and how it fits into the structure of language;

    • how grammar functions in the school curriculum, the press, broadcasting and social media, as well as how these outlets reflect and reinforce our attitudes towards grammar;

    • differences between speech and writing, as well as between formality and informality;

    • major different approaches to theorising and describing grammar from important grammarians, including Noam Chomsky and Michael Halliday.

    Featuring a glossary of key terms and practical tips and insights from the author's 50+ years of language teaching experience around the world, this book is for anyone who has ever found themselves questioning the ‘rules’ of the English language.
