MAKING SENSE: THE GLAMOROUS STORY OF ENGLISH GRAMMAR
by David Crystal
published by Profile Books

*

Grammar is complex but as Professor Crystal shows, it need not be daunting: the more we understand it, he argues, the more sense we shall make. This book is as entertaining as it is instructive, uniting investigations of grammar's nature, variations, history and teaching with practical advice. Making Sense will appeal to everyone interested in the English language and how to use it.

In this book, David Crystal explains grammar's rules and irregularities, shows how to navigate its snares and pitfalls, and explores its history and varieties. He gives practical guidance on how grammar may be used for different purposes and in different settings. He provides a series of insights into the stages by which children acquire grammar and shows how this can be used to guide its early instruction.
