Description - Grammar and Vocabulary by Howard Jackson

Routledge English Language Introductions cover core areas of language study and are intended as one-stop resources for students. Assuming no prior knowledge, books in the series offer an accessible overview of the subject, with activities, study questions, sample analyses, commentaries and key readings. The "two-dimensional" structure is built around four sections - introduction, development, exploration and extension - which offer self-contained stages for study. Each topic can also be read across these sections, enabling the reader to build gradually on the knowledge gained. "Grammar and Vocabulary" is a comprehensive introduction to the grammar and vocabulary of contemporary English. It covers the core areas of grammar and vocabulary: words and sentences, word classes, word structure, slots and fillers, sentence patterns, clause and phrase, grammar rules and vocabularies. It draws on a wide range of real texts including: articles in "The Guardian", a "Ramblers" advertisement; a poem by Betjemen; and provides classic readings by the key names in the discipline, from Halliday to Quirk and from Ayto to Trudgill.
