Abstract:

Depraetere and Langford, with 40 years of teaching experience between 
them, present a grammar pitched precisely at advanced learners of English 
who need to understand how the English language really works without 
getting lost in the specifics. Most linguistically-oriented grammars of English 
can be intimidating and complex. On the other hand, the more basic practical 
grammars also available are often not advanced enough.
 
This book pulls from linguistic theory all the relevant notions that will enable 
the language student to fully grasp English grammar. After introducing form 
and function, the authors cover verbs, nouns, aspect and tense, modality and 
discourse. Readers are led through the underlying principles of language use, 
with the book presupposing only a basic grasp of linguistic terminology. It 
does not get bogged down in huge amounts of detail and focuses on the 
crucial issues. Full of exercises and with attention paid to moving the reader 
through their course, this is the desk reference grammar of choice for both 
native and non-native English speakers.

'This book fills a long-standing gap, as it successfully combines the study of 
linguistics with language teaching: it offers an in-depth discussion of central 
areas of English grammar which are particularly relevant for the language 
learner, while at the same time providing a clear and up-to-date introduction to 
essential grammatical concepts and the logical system behind them. All of 
this is presented in a highly accessible and readable way together with plenty 
of practical exercises, which makes this book a perfect companion for 
advanced/upper-intermediate learners of English and students of English 
linguistics alike.' Dr Gunther Kaltenböck, University of Vienna, Austria
