Product Description


'Dr Huddleston's style is both lucid and relaxed, so Introduction to the Grammar of English can be recommended even to those with no previous knowledge of linguistics … Despite the good coverage of linguistic terms, this is a jargon-free book.' EFL Gazette

Not enough explanation, rambles all over the place 6 Sept. 2006
By D. Clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this book hoping for a gentle intro into grammar and linguistics and then more discussion of other advanced grammar/linguistic topics.It however dissappointed me greatly. Within the first 20 pages, he is talking about subordinate clauses and what not with no explanation of them. He says in the preface that all such terms are fully explained, but by chapter 6, one is swimming in an ocean of terms that were never explained. If I wanted to go back in lookup every term to be 100% clear about it, I would have bought a reference book. Damn, I had high hopes for this book !
