English Words and Sentences Reviews


'As a teacher of English linguistics myself, what I find of particular value in this book is that each section is supplemented by a range of imaginative exercises and activities to engage students and make accessible the detailed description it provides.' Barbara Seidlhofer, University of Vienna
'It is remarkable how effortlessly this book moves from a very basic to a very complex level, making it suitable for both A-level and undergraduate students.' Georg Marko, University of Graz
'An easy introduction to English grammar, with plenty of activities and exercises to help beginners to gain confidence, and a healthy balance of fact, analysis and understanding.' Richard Hudson, Professor Emeritus of Linguistics, University College London
'For the chemist we have the 'periodic table', for the mathematician 'numbers', but perhaps the greatest game of them all is what we find in 'words'. Here's the playbook.' Joseph Galasso, California State University, Northridge
'This textbook is a hands-on inductive introduction to the basic morphological and syntactic structures of English, written in a very reader-friendly style. It does not presuppose any previous linguistic knowledge but builds it up systematically by involving the reader in plenty of analytical exercises. It is therefore a perfect tool for introductions to English grammar, either to be used as a textbook in class or for self-study.' Dieter Kastovsky, University of Vienna
