Critics’ Reviews

“Written in exceptionally clear prose and elucidated with modern-day examples, A New Form-Function Grammar of English teaches students how form and function are inextricably linked in the analysis of language structure. This approach is a welcome one for educators who recognize the need for teaching both facets of grammar, and makes the textbook an ideal adoption for English, Rhetoric, Linguistics, Language Arts, and Education programs which focus on the stylistic choices expected in the college classroom (and beyond) and the underpinnings of language structure more broadly. End-of-chapter exercises provide excellent opportunities for students to apply the content and build on the subject matter.” — Dawn Nordquist, University of New Mexico
