9780130322609: English Grammar: Language as Human Behavior

For undergraduate and graduate level courses in English grammar, syntax, and writing; also appropriate for a course in teaching English at the secondary level.

Approaching grammar as a process and not a product, this text engages students in a conversation about English that will help them reflect on how their language works and understand the social judgments that accompany language use—making them feel they are active participants in shaping their language rather than passive victims of grammar rules that someone imposes on them. Employing the terminology of traditional grammar combined with the insights gained by modern linguistic analysis, it describes English as an instrument of communication, and lays the necessary groundwork for thinking about language so that students can extend what they learn to new situations and apply their knowledge of language in ways most useful to them. Three different types of exercises support the learning and review processes and motivate students to think, talk, and write about English with increasing confidence and sophistication as the term progresses.

From the Back Cover:

Now in its second edition, Anita K. Barry's ENGLISH GRAMMAR makes students feel that they are active participants in shaping their language rather than passive victims of grammar rules that someone imposes on them.

Each chapter contains three kinds of exercises to help students master English grammar:

  • Discussion Exercises are distributed throughout the chapter and designed for group or class work.
  • Reflections are open-ended questions and project suggestions at the end of each chapter.
  • Practice Exercises at the end of each chapter integrate all the information presented in that chapter.
