Modern Grammars

This innovative series of practical reference guides combines traditional and function-based grammar. The Grammars are ideal reference grammars for intermediate and advanced learners at A-level and beyond.

They are divided into two parts: a section that covers traditional grammatical categories such as word order, nouns, verbs and adjectives, and a section that is organized around language functions such as:

  • giving and seeking information
  • putting actions into context
  • expressing likes, dislikes and preferences
  • comparing objects and actions.

All Modern Grammars are available as inspection copies.
