Grammar Today by Richard Betting

Book Description

"Grammar Today" helps clear the muddied waters, explaining grammar, and its relationship to language, where usage fits, and making a clear connection between linguistic information and style, one of the most important reasons for knowing grammar in the first place. Style can be the catalyst for changing knowing into doing for both teachers and learners. Knowing a variety of styles from which to choose the most effective one for every language situation will enable learners and motivate teachers.Written by former English teacher Richard Betting, "Grammar Today" was written primarily for language arts teachers and students. The book deconstructs the myth that knowing grammar will almost automatically make students better writers and speakers. It offers an alternative method: putting grammar to work in the form of making stylistic choices. Along the road to communication competence, both language learners and English teachers will encounter useful information about where English began, what its components are and how they differ in their forms and functions.
