Michael Swan, Catherine Walter ... 348 pages - Publisher: Oxford University Press; (January, 2011) ... Language: English - ISBN-10: 019431250X - ISBN-13: 978-0194312509

Each section opens with a lively presentation page which introduces the point of grammar. The grammar explanations are short, concise and easy to remember. Each grammar point that students learn is followed by an activity so they can practice before moving on to the next explanation. The practice activities are really engaging. 'Check your knowledge' exercises revise basic grammar and are combined with vocabulary work. 'Internet exercises' encourage students to do their own exploration of usage. Part 2, Grammar for reading, writing, and speaking helps your students with the production and understanding of more complex spoken exchanges and written texts at different levels of formality. Towards the end of the Advanced level students will be at a level where they will benefit from using Practical English Usage and Practical English Usage Diagnostic Tests.

Like its predecessor, the third edition of Academic Writing for Graduate Students explains understanding the intended audience, the purpose of the paper, and academic genres; includes the use of task-based methodology, analytic group discussion, and genre consciousness-raising; shows how to write summaries and critiques; features Language Focus sections that address linguistic elements as they affect the wider rhetorical objectives; and helps students position themselves as junior scholars in their academic communities. Among the many changes in the third edition: * newer, longer, and more authentic texts and examples * greater discipline variety in texts (added texts from hard sciences and engineering) * more in-depth treatment of research articles * greater emphasis on vocabulary issues * revised flow-of-ideas section * additional tasks that require students to do their own research * more corpus-informed content * binding that allows the book to lay flat when open.

Andrea DeCapua ... 439 pages - Publisher: Springer; 2nd edition (August, 2016) ... Language: English - ISBN-10: 3319339141 - ISBN-13: 978-3319339146 ...

Updated and revised with more examples and expanded discussions, this second edition continues the aim of providing teachers with a solid understanding of the use and function of grammatical structures in American English. The book avoids jargon and presents essential grammatical structures clearly and concisely. Dr. DeCapua approaches grammar from a descriptive rather than a prescriptive standpoint, discussing differences between formal and informal language, and spoken and written English. The text draws examples from a wide variety of authentic materials to illustrate grammatical concepts. The many activities throughout the book engage users in exploring the different elements of grammar and in considering how these elements work together to form meaning. Users are encouraged to tap into their own, often subconscious, knowledge of grammar to consciously apply their knowledge to their own varied teaching settings. The text also emphasizes the importance of understanding grammar from the perspective of English language learners, an approach that allows teachers to better appreciate the difficulties these learners face.  Specific areas of difficulties for learners of English are highlighted throughout.

This groundbreaking undergraduate textbook on modern Standard English grammar is the first to be based on the revolutionary advances of the authors' previous work, The Cambridge Grammar of the English Language (2002). The analyses defended there are outlined here more briefly, in an engagingly accessible and informal style. Errors of the older tradition of English grammar are noted and corrected, and the excesses of prescriptive usage manuals are firmly rebutted in specially highlighted notes that explain what older authorities have called 'incorrect' and show why those authorities are mistaken. This book is intended for students in colleges or universities who have little or no previous background in grammar, and presupposes no linguistics. It contains exercises, and will provide a basis for introductions to grammar and courses on the structure of English not only in linguistics departments but also in English language and literature departments and schools of education.
