Analyzing the Grammar of English is the single English grammar to view the sentence as a strictly punctuational construct―anything that starts with a capital letter and ends with a interval, a query mark, an exclamation mark, or 3 dots―rather than a syntactic one, and to load, as a result, the entire helpful syntactic research onto the clause and its constituents.
It can also be one of many only a few English grammars to include―alongside a number of examples of canonical or "standard" language―occasional samples of stigmatized speech to demonstrate grammar points.
Students and lecturers in classes of English grammatical research, English educating equipment, TESOL tools, and developmental English will all reap the benefits of this new edition.
