This textbook is a must for those serious in this discipline.' Josef Fioretta, Hofstra University, USA 'This excellent new edition guides the reader through the grammatical analysis of the English language in a most insightful and engaging way. It features even more examples and exercises using real English and there is a focus on the importance and relevance of grammar to different aspects of life throughout.' Jules Winchester, University of Sussex, UK 'This third edition speaks volumes for the successful teaming up of two expert authors who, from complementary perspectives, have understood to skillfully, and in an entertaining manner, attract a broad readership to the true glamour of English grammar and the way it is put to use in everyday life across the world.' Bernd Kortmann, University of Freiburg, Germany
