Overview

English Sentence Analysis: An introductory course is designed as a 10-week course for students of English Language and Literature, Linguistics, or other language related fields. In 10 weeks the student will be proficient in English analysis at sentence, clause and phrase level and have a solid understanding of the traditional terms and concepts of English syntax. This introduction prepares for practical courses in grammar and writing skills and for theoretical courses in syntactic argumentation. The package consists of a Course Book with 8 Chapters and a CD-Rom with the interactive Practice Program.
The Course Book provides
• sentence structures in clear graphics;
• logically structured chapters with Introductions and Summaries;
• exercises with quotations and excerpts from English, American and Australian literature and pop songs.

The Practice Program
• contains over 800 interactive exercises;
• over 700 authentic quotations and excerpts from literature and popular music to analyze;
• detailed feedback with hyperlinks to the comprehensive theory module;
• an on-screen score count;
• adapts to the individual student’s problem areas.

English Sentence Analysis: An introductory course has been classroom tested at various universities. The students seem to enjoy the ‘dreaded’ syntax course and pass rates have gone up significantly from 50 to 70%.
The Practice Program is based on Hologram, designed and adapted by the University of Groningen, Fac. of Arts, Centre for ICT and Learning. Institutes interested in a Network version for Windows can contact customer.services@benjamins.nl.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Written by two instructors at Groningen University (in the Netherlands), this text guides the student of English through the intricacies of sentence structure. The authors have maintained a stringent and rather advanced level of analysis throughout: one learns the grammatical terms for all types of indirect objects, for example. A CD-ROM is included containing practice exercises for each chapter. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    I wish I could've read it. It would be helpful for my classes.

    I cannot give a review of the book itself as I never received it.
