Reviews

Meaning-Based Pedagogical Grammar provides a fresh new approach to grammar teaching and learning for communication. It is an exciting development, grounded in linguistic theory, that helps both teachers and learners to see the big picture of English grammar. Meaning-Based Pedagogical Grammar is perhaps the easiest way to teach. -- Professor Akihiko Haisa, Department of English Language, Culture, and Communication, Sagami Women's University

Meaning-Based Pedagogical Grammar is perhaps the easiest way to teach. -- Professor Akihiko Haisa, Department of English Language, Culture, and Communication, Sagami Women's University 'Given these minor caveats, the book makes a significant contribution to the literature by laying out a practical approach to teaching communication-oriented grammar. Readers, whether they consider themselves students, teachers, learners, or researchers, will be inspired by the lucid presentation of MAP grammar and its accessibility for practitioners and, most importantly, for learners.' - Larry Walker, Professor, Kyoto Prefectual University, Japan
