Description: Designed to make grammar "fun" and "intellectually exciting, " this book doesn't teach readers "about" grammar but how to "do" grammar --i.e., how to understand the structure and function -- the rationale -- of the English language by becoming actively involved with their own analysis and description of the language. KEY TOPICS: " Building on what readers already know "intuitively" about English, it is the first book to combine traditional and generative approaches in one practical synthesis -- showing readers how to notice patterns in their language, how to describe those patterns in clear and principled ways, how to decide which of their descriptions are best, and how to represent their decisions in the form of rules and diagrams. It helps readers understand and resolve well-known usage problems -- subject-verb agreement, “ sexism” in language, dangling modifiers, and others -- by description of their grammar and features humorous examples throughout -- including quotations from authors such as Homer, Malcolm X, Jane Austen, Henry James, and Toni Morrison.
