5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST HAVE 4 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Clear explanations, judicious use of grammatical terminology, lesson ideas for teaching specific grammar points, exercises with answers, all in all great value for money for teachers and an excellent reference grammar.
The only drawback (this does not concern the author) is the unwieldy size of the volume i.e. this magnum opus needs reformatting.

Thank you Mr Cowan for your service to the English language.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Teacher's Grammar of English 21 Feb 2009
By D. Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Since this book is both a Course Book for teachers and a Reference Guide, the first 60 pages are useless for most experienced teachers. However, there are still 600+ more pages discussing the major grammar structures that most grammar and writing teachers will need to know. I like the way the author provides in depth explanations and short summaries of each grammar structure. The author also provides occasional information about L2 interference broken down by various language backgrounds. There is also a section at the end of each chapter suggesting ways to teach the particular grammar structure. I wish this section was more developed. My only other complaint so far is that the author only devotes one short chapter to verb tenses!

4.0 out of 5 stars Required by my class 23 Sep 2012
By Solian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is not for beginners in English. It is useful for English teachers. It discusses grammatical issues at high level. I dont recommand it to freshmen or secondary students. It is good for seniors and grads students.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book 2 Nov 2012
By Freddy F - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a good book. As other reviewers have mentioned, there are a couple of aspects that might not seem quite clear; however, it offers valuable explanation and teaching suggestions for the most part. I find it easy to read and a good reference book.

By Renee Hatcher - Published on Amazon.com

I will continue to use this book for reference beyond the university classroom into the middle school ESOL classroom. It is an important tool for any teacher of English who may need quick reference.
