Geoffrey Leech, Jan Svartvik


A Communicative Grammar of English by Geoffrey Leech and Jan Svartvik, first published in 1975, has established itself as a grammar innovative in approach, reliable in coverage, and clear in its explanations. Now this fully revised and redesigned third edition provides an up-to-date and accessible resource for teachers, advanced learners and undergraduate students of English. Accompanying this third edition, there is a completely new Workbook co-authored by ELT specialists Edward Woods and Rudy Coppieters, which will help students to 'internalise' the contents of the grammar. A Communicative Grammar of English employs a communicative rather than a structural approach to the learning of English grammar. This edition is divided into three parts. Part One: A guide to the use of this book - looks at the way English grammar varies in different types of English, for example 'formal' and 'informal', 'spoken' and 'written'. Part Two: Grammar in use - the central and largest part of the book, presents grammar through the eyes of the communicator and focuses on the uses of grammar rather than on grammatical structure. Part Three: A-Z in English grammar - provides a useful and alphabetically arranged guide to English grammar. This new edition includes more real examples taken from corpus data. Increased emphasis is given to grammar in spoken language, providing a better balance between written and spoken English. Explanations and examples have been made simpler in order to make the grammar more accessible to students. GEOFFREY LEECH is Emeritus Professor in the Department of Linguistics and Modern English Language at Lancaster University, UK, and JAN SVARTVIK is Emeritus Professor of English atLund University, Sweden.Geoffrey Leech is the author of 'A Communicative Grammar of English, Third Edition', published 2003 under ISBN 9780582506336 and ISBN 0582506336.
