THE GRAMMAR OF ENGLISH
Morphology and Syntax for English Teachers in Southeast Asia
David H. Deterding and Gloria R. Poedjosoedarmo

	
This book introduces the grammar of English in straightforward
language that is suitable for nonspecialist readers, particularly
English teachers.
	
The first chapters introduce the basic concepts of word formation,
phrases and clauses using the same pedagogical model of grammar that
most teachers will encounter in their classroom materials.  Then there
is an introduction to functional grammar, which considers how
sentences fit together to form coherent texts.  Finally, there are
three short chapters considering Chomsky's model of grammar, to allow
teachers to be aware of some modern developments in grammar theory.
	
In addition, there is one chapter each on the grammar of Singapore
English, Mandarin Chinese, and Malay.
	
This book is designed for teachers in Asia, particularly southeast
Asia, so particular attention has been devoted to ensuring it is
relevant for students in this region.
