Routledge Language Workbooks are practical introductions to specific areas of language for absolute beginners. They provide comprehensive coverage of the areas as well as a basis for further study. Language Workbooks can be used for independent study or as part of a taught class. Language Workbooks: * teach through ''hands-on'' language analysis * are written by experienced teachers in the field * give a balanced insight into basic linguistic theory * apply basic analytical skills to a wide range of data * explain all technical concepts clearly and simply. English Grammar offers a new approach to the teaching of traditional grammar, using the insights of modern linguistics and modern teaching methods. English Grammar: * helps users to understand grammatical concepts * encourages the reader to practise applying newly discovered concepts to ordinary texts * teaches students to analyze almost every word in any English text * provides teachers and students with a firm grounding in a system which they can both understand and apply.
