The new edition of this bestselling text employs standard grammatical terminology, but it also uses terms which allow for a more functional interpretation.

Aligned with the new Australian Curriculum: English, this edition is organised around the main functions that language plays in our lives: interacting with others, structuring coherent texts and expressing and developing ideas. Another major difference is that the content now extends into secondary schooling, dealing with the language challenges faced by older students.


Great book


Great reference - school I work at recommends it



Great companion !


Plenty of troubleshooting tips



Prescribed text for teachers of Grammar


This book was on the required reading list for my degree in Primary Education, unlike many other 'textbooks' this one is a keeper. It is well written, easy to use and explains complex concepts in laymans terms. It encourages practical applications and is accessible by teachers and students alike. It definitely won't be going on Ebay as soon as my degree is finished and will be a staple on the classroom bookshelf for many years to come.
