The Cambridge Grammar of English is a major new reference grammar from the world's leading grammar publisher. Using ground-breaking language research, it offers clear explanations of spoken and written English based on real everyday usage. A clear two-part structure makes the book particularly user-friendly. In the first section, A-Z entries give more attention to lexico-grammar and other language areas that tend to be neglected in other grammar references. The second section covers traditional grammatical categories such as tense, clause structure and parts of speech. The accompanying CD-ROM makes the Cambridge Grammar of English even more accessible with: the whole book in handy, searchable format; audio recordings of all example sentences from the book; links to the Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary online for instant definitions of new vocabulary.
