Mastering English presentsa new, pedagogically sound approach to English grammar. Breaking with the terse, and often dry, matter of fact mode of traditional grammars, the reader is taken along a reasoned course through the grammar of English. Both an advanced textbook and a reference work, Mastering English is different in a number of ways: It offers a simple but comprehensive syntactic system which enables the student to analyse any sentence down to word level with a specification of both the form and the function of constituents at all levels. It combines coherent discussion, rule presentation and rich examplification, rather than simply offering lists of facts. it includes a thorough treatment of a number of areas neglected by most other grammars, such as inversion, discontinuity, negation, and order and position of adverbials and adjectival modifiers.
