Glossary of English Grammar by Geoffrey Leech
Book DescriptionThis is an alphabetic guide to common terms used in the description of the English language. "A Glossary of English Grammar" presents a wide range of terms used to describe the way the English language is structured. Grammatical terms can be a problem for students, especially when there are alternative names for the same thing (for example, 'past tense' and 'preterite'). This book therefore provides a basic and accessible guide, focusing on the English language. Definitions of grammatical terms are given in simple language, with clear examples, many from authentic texts and spoken sources, showing how they are used. The terms used in the "Comprehensive Grammar of the English Language" are widely seen as standard, and form the basis of grammatical terminology in this book. At the same time, this glossary takes account of other variants of English grammar, including the most important terms from Huddleston and Pullum's influential "Cambridge Grammar of the English Language". This book is indispensable for anyone wishing to understand present-day terminology of English grammar more fully.
