Overview

Mastering English presents a new, pedagogically sound approach to English grammar. Breaking with the terse, and often dry, matter of fact mode of traditional grammars, the reader is taken along a reasoned course through the grammar of English. Both an advanced textbook and a reference work, Mastering English is different in a number of ways:

  • It offers a simple but comprehensive syntactic system which enables the student to analyse any sentence down to word level with a specification of both the form and the function of constituents at all levels.
  • It combines coherent discussion, rule presentation and rich examplification, rather than simply offering lists of facts.
  • it includes a thorough treatment of a number of areas neglected by most other grammars, such as inversion, discontinuity, negation, and order and position of adverbials and adjectival modifiers.
