5.0 out of 5 stars Finest grammar book for years, 7 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Oxford Modern English Grammar (Hardcover)
I feel ashamed to admit I had not heard of Bas Aarts prior to reading his modern perspective on the descriptive grammar of English. I have read maybe fifty grammar books for reference or casual purpose, and this is the only one that I can closely match to the infamous Cambridge Grammar (2002). It reads almost as a narrative, and draws you in to better understand the often complex and difficult concepts such as word classes and morphology. It is easy to read and engaging, and I have ordered several copies - I have read it on the train, before bed and at university, and it never fails to teach me something new and improve my comprehension of grammar. Well done, Bas!
