CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The Cambridge Grammar of the English Language is the first comprehensive
descriptive grammar of English to appear for over fifteen years, a period which
has seen immense developments in linguistic theory at all levels. The principal
authors, Rodney Huddleston and Geoffrey Pullum, are among the world's leading
scholars in this area, and they have benefited from the expertise of an
international team of distinguished contributors in preparing what will be the
definitive grammar for decades to come. Each chapter comprises core
definitions, detailed analyses, notes explaining alternative interpretations of
difficult or controversial points, and brief notes on usage and history.
Numerous cross-references and an exhaustive index ensure ease of access to
information. An introductory section offers guidance as to how best to use the
book is provided. Rodney Huddleston was until recently Professor in the
Linguistics section of the Department of English at the University of
Queensland, Australia, and has been publishing important books and papers on
English grammar for thirty years. Geoffrey K. Pullum is Professor of
Linguistics at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and is the author of
200 articles and books on English grammar and a variety of other topics in
theoretical and applied linguistics.
