Longman English Grammar-L G.Alexander


Grammatical descriptions of English which are addressed to learners 
are often oversimplified and inaccurate This is the inevitable result of 
lack of time in the classroom and lack of space in course books and 
practice books Badly expressed and inaccurate rules, in turn, become 
enshrined in grammar books directed at teachers and students The 
misrepresentation of English grammar gives a false view of the 
language, perpetuates inaccurate 'rules', and results in errors in 
communication It is against this background that the Longman English 
Grammar has been written
The primary aim of this book is to present a manageable coverage of 
grammar at intermediate and advanced levels, which will serve two 
purposes
1  To present information which can be consulted for reference
2  To suggest the range of structures that a student would need to be 
familiar with receptively and (to a lesser extent) productively to be 
able to communicate effectively 
In other words, the book aims to be a true pedagogical grammar for 
everyone concerned with English as a foreign language It attempts to 
provide reasonable answers to reasonable questions about the 
workings of the language and to define what English as a Foreign 
Language is in terms of grammar
