Description
Can it ever be fun to learn about grammar? IsnOt that an oxymoron? But how about the historical traditions behind grammar? What is the purpose of grammar? How does modern grammar differ from yesterdayOs grammar? Allowing individuals to actually think about the way they speak and the aspects which comprise their everyday language is perhaps the most basic and most effective way to begin language analysis. By drawing on the daily use of language, this book explores the cultural significance of so-called "traditional" grammar as a set of tools and terms; and gives readers a basic understanding of the modern linguistic view of language as a rule-governed system. The focus throughout is on language analysis that readers will find both relevant and interesting. Language is explored as a system of universal qualities, dynamic and transforming and language study as the impetus that pushes people to critically rethink their assumptions about language. Anyone interested in improving their mastery of the English language.
