Summary

The War Against Grammar disagrees with the establishment view that the teaching of traditional grammar is a waste of classroom time. According to David Mulroy, both history and commonsense make clear that students benefit from diagramming and learning their parts of speech - both during their school years and beyond. Drawing upon his classical training, Mulroy offers a close reading of the history of language study and of linguistic research to support his view that English teaching must revitalize grammar education - and that it will produce a generation better able to read and write complex texts.
