Reviews

Advanced English Grammar is the fruit of labour of two experienced teachers of English language ... This is a very welcome book that fills a gap between traditional grammar approach and pure linguistics analysis, and is written in a style that steers clear of the intimidating prose of linguistic analysis and the prescriptive nature of traditional grammar. -- Language and Language Teaching Within the crowded market of pedagogical grammars of English, this book is unique in its aims and coverage. The authors have succeeded in presenting English grammar from a linguistic approach effortlessly combining scientific rigour and pedagogical clarity. This second edition features welcome changes that make the book even more accessible and reader-friendly, such as additional examples, more comprehensive tables and charts, and a more extensive treatment of key topics. * Andrea Nava, Lecturer in English and Second Language Acquisition and Teaching, University of Milan, Italy * This is a grammar that is primarily intended for non-native speaking students of English. It serves this audience extremely well. The theoretical framework is up-to-date, the coverage is comprehensive, the presentation is clear, and the exercises are useful and motivating. Needless to add, these qualities will also make the book attractive to readers beyond its target audience. * Christian Mair, Chair of English Linguistics, University of Freiburg, Germany * This book meets the needs of both advanced learners of English and their teachers. It is decidedly effective for prospective teachers of English as it bridges traditional grammatical description and current linguistic theory. The exposition integrates theoretical discussion, extensive exemplification and a large number of valuable, thought-provoking exercises. * Anastasios Tsangalidis, Professor in the School of English, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece *
