Synopsis

Liberating Grammar by Clifford John Vaida

For junior/graduate-level courses in English Grammar and Advanced English Syntax.Designed to make grammar fun and intellectually exciting, this text doesn't teach students about grammar but how to do grammar -i.e., how to understand the structure and function - the rationale - of the English language by becoming actively involved with their own analysis and description of the language. Building on what students already know intuitively about English, it is the first text to combine traditional and generative approaches in one practical synthesis - showing students how to notice patterns in their language, how to describe those patterns in clear and principled ways, how to decide which of their descriptions are best, and how to represent their decisions in the form of rules and diagrams.
