Summary

For undergraduate courses in English grammar; also appropriate for junior/senior level English grammar courses.

Advanced Grammar introduces basic concepts of English grammar by employing a transformational-generative approach; it utilizes tree-diagrams that reinforce the fact that the infinite variety of sentences produced by every speaker is governed by a small set of rather simple rules. The text provides great detail about a broad array of constructions (passive, negative, questions, tag questions, existentials, clefts, fronting, left and right dislocation, emphasis, contrast, subordination, and conjoined sentences) and gives more information about sentence structure (especially the auxiliary system) than any other book on the market. It combines all subfields of linguistics and presents them in an integrated manner so that students can easily see how all of language is an interconnecting system.
