Product Description

Review

'The most accessible, comprehensive grammar I have seen.' --Michael Lewis, Author of The Lexical Approach

'A stepping stone towards confident and precise users of English.' --Geoff Barton,Times Educational Supplement

'The most significant book to be published in the field of grammar for a very long time.' --Roger Hunt, International House Journal

Book Description

The Cambridge Grammar of English is a major reference grammar from the world's leading grammar publisher. Using ground breaking language research, it offers clear explanations of spoken and written English based on real everyday usage. A clear two-part structure makes the book particularly user-friendly. In the first section, A-Z entries give more attention to lexico-grammar and other language areas that tend to be neglected in grammar references. The second section covers traditional grammatical categories such as tense, clause structure and parts of speech.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick and Useful 13 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm teaching English abroad and this has helped massively with learning about the grammar rules. English is complicated and most things we just know doesn't sound right but don't know why. This book explains it and has examples and is easy to read. It came quickly and it's extremely useful. Definitely recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best you can buy 21 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback
Possibly the best and most authoritative grammar book today available. Just go for it if you are serious about learning how English grammar works. I reccommend it to anyone studying at an upper-intermediate/advanced level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cambridge Grammar of English 17 Oct 2009
Format:Paperback
About as comprehensive as a grammar could be, yet readily accessible for checking particular points of usage. Appears equally useful to a teacher of Engish as a foreign language.

Its terminology is not the one older people learned at school - but none the less useful for that.

Hard to fault - unless there is just too much information overall.

It is the kind of thing I was looking for to support and progress in my studies.
It is a good item for a good price, full of data, information and ideas about the
language of English, as I already said, perfect for the work and studies I am doing
at present. Excellent!!! I would buy another one if I needed it. Sure.
