Comments

Modern English Structures is far superior to any other grammar text I have used in my grammar class. Approaching English grammar from a trinocular perspective, through Form, Function, and Position, Bernard O’Dwyer manages to acount for many abstract grammar concepts in a way that is truly enlightening for students and teachers alike. The wealth of well-chosen examples and the lucidity of his account put this text in a class of its own.” — Hyo-Chang Hong, Marshall University

“What a terrific book and workbook, the best I’ve seen and I’ve been reviewing university-level grammar texts for years. The text is intelligent, accessible, and clear, with sophisticated exercises that do not condescend to my advanced students. I’m really impressed.” — Katy Rehyansky, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga
