    | Book description |

 

Many students of English as a second language are daunted by the complexities of English grammar and its terminology. This user-friendly book was written especially for them. The emphasis here is on practical use of written and spoken American-style English, rather than on theory.

The first of the book's 15 chapters explains different kinds of sentences-affirmative, negative, and interrogative, as well as clauses and phrases that are component parts of many sentences. Several chapters that follow focus on different parts of speech, describing their uses in verbal and written communication. The book's later chapters discuss vocabulary, standard protocols in conversational speech, and modes of expression, such as preferences and dislikes. A separate chapter presents guidelines for composing letters, e-mails, resumes, and other written forms. Short quizzes for self-testing appear throughout the text, with answers given at the back of the book.

学习英文的读者常被英语的复杂文法和惯用语所苦恼。本书针对有这方面问题的学习者,以深入浅出的方式,把英语惯用法范畴与英文文法中的一些重点、难点、疑点以及容易混淆的问题进行归纳整理。
前十五章提出各种句型的相关使用,包括肯定句、否定句、疑问句,以及构成句型的片语与英文词类的形态和用法。后几个章节则包括会话、动词的使用与写作的沟通技巧上需注意的相关事项。
