A Grammar of Late Modern English - Part I. the Sentence - Second Half the Composite Sentence
English Grammar is the body of rules that describe the structure of expression in the English language. This includes the structure of words, phrases, clauses, and sentences. There are many historical, social, and regional variations of English, but there are eight main word classes of parts of speech that are traditionally distinguished: nouns, determiners, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, and conjunctions. This comprehensive text is split into two sections: The Sentence and The Composite Sentence; and within the 997 pages of these sections is covered everything from casual Co-ordination to nominal-clauses; subordinate questions to elliptical sentences. A brilliant and detailed guide to English grammar, this book will greatly appeal to anyone interested in developmental history of the subject. This book was originally published in 1929, and is proudly republished here with a prefatory introduction to the subject.
