Five star approach to real grammar
on 17 July 2008
This book really is a gem given its size and the amount of grammar it covers. It is invaluable for answering all of the difficult questions TESOL teachers may face, e.g. phrasal verbs, modality and compound nouns etc. It also explains why written and spoken grammars are so different, and should be treated as so. All of the examples used are from a corpus of real language. I have used it both in my undergraduate and now post-graduate work. It is simply the best.
