4.0 étoiles sur 5 An Interesting, Different Grammar 24 juillet 2011
Par Arthur L. Fisher - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This book is not a traditional grammar. Instead it is a modern grammar that reflects advances in knowledge of English from linguistics. It offers a different way of looking at English grammar than that provided by traditional grammars. It provides lots of real world examples of sentences to illustrate grammar rules.

The book is a descriptive, not a prescriptive, grammar.

Although the book covers both British and American English grammar, its focus is heavily on British English grammar. A large majority of the examples are from British English.

This is a good book for people familiar with traditional grammar but who want to experience a different perspective on grammar. I found the book mind expanding. However, this is not the best book for those who want to improve their writing of American English.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 The Kindle version is not good and the book is not fun to read. 23 décembre 2013

Don't buy the kindle version. I made that mistake and now I am stuck with it. The kindle version has issues with lists, tables, and sidebars. It doesn't show the complete pages as in a physical book which distracts from reading the actual content and makes it feel fragmented.

The book has a lot of good new information but it is not readable: there is no flow. It is full of definitions, lists, etc. I recommend another advanced more readable book, "A Student's Introduction to English Grammar" by Huddleston and Pullmum. Even though it has student in the title but it is actually an advanced book based on the new Cambridge's Grammar by the same authors.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Grammar in Plain English! 13 octobre 2012
Par Touchito - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
English grammar is not easy, so if you need to learn grammar or just improve your reading/writing skills, you need a really good course or book. You need to examine a lot of different options to make a good choice, but not all of them include morphology (nor syntax) which is a basic, and today's different grammar theories make it more difficult and confusing. The Oxford Modern English Grammar doesn't miss any basics, it's easy to understand, and it clears any possible confusion as you read, so you can learn grammar without a teacher. I do recommend this book!

The book covers a wide range of topics and explains, in a clear way, the English language structures while being a rich and trustworthy grammatical reference for anyone interested in improving their linguistics skills, including native speakers.

This review is based on fragments of the book I do not intend to read from cover to cover. The reasons you can see below.

At the time of purchase I wanted a serious grammar book for a grown-up reader, no teddy bears or tinker bell faeries to help engage my attention. I was prepared for a descriptive grammar book—where it's hard to find a reader woven into the message (he's there though: in phrases such as 'In the examples that follow' or 'It is interesting to remember' or 'Note that' or 'We can show that'). Unfortunately this one reads as if it were a huge list of the most dull equations you can imagine; as if it were a picture created by a painter for no one to see. Of course even such an obscure work of art always finds its admirers: look what happens in 'The Vivisector' by Patrick White. I love abstract art and its fancy prices, just not the Aarts's art. Clearly, this book was written either for the multitude of a highbrow bore or for the author himself with the sole purpose of summing up his life's work. I imagine there must have been passion involved (for language as a system, a little less for language as communication) and I'm sure this book adds plenty to the discussion. Only I must retire from it and, as a non-native English speaker, stick with the more pragmatics-oriented approach I have found only recently, in 'The Chicago Guide to Grammar, Usage, and Punctuation'.

P.S. A quote from the Oxford Modern English Grammar: "The present tense is also commonly used to express a series of identical situations, that is, a habit." This shows how unfortunate is the author's understanding of pragmatics. Because neither 'a series' nor 'identical situations' conveys the message of habit being an intentional repetiton, meaning: there's a person behind the habit and it's this person's way of existing in time. Tenses don't float in balloons to be popped off abruptly from a book's page. If I wanted to mock even more, I'd say a series of identical situations might be as well a stamp series with a single stamp depicting an act of feudal homage.
