Understanding Sentence Structure: An Introduction to English Syntax

John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2018

by, Christina Tortora, PhD

This book is for people who have never thought about syntax, and who don't know anything about grammar, but who want to learn. Assuming a blank slate on the part of the reader, the book treats English grammar as a product of the speaker's mind, and builds up student skills by exploring phrases and sentences with more and more complexity, as the chapters proceed. This practical guide excites and empowers readers by guiding them step by step through each chapter with intermittent exercises. In order to capitalize on the reader's confidence as a personal authority on English, Understanding Sentence Structure assumes an inclusive definition of English, taking dialect variation and structures common amongst millions of English speakers to be a fact of natural language. Understanding Sentence Structure: An Introduction to English Syntax is an ideal book for undergraduates studying Modern English grammar and for instructors teaching introductory courses in English grammar, syntax, and sentence structure.
