It is both a modern complement to existing descriptive grammars and an important resource for anyone interested in working with or finding out about English No other grammar of English is at once as comprehensive and as systematically and lucidly informed by present-day linguistic theory.
I see it as an essential work of reference. This was a magnificent team effort, spanning more than ten years. Together these linguists have produced a monumental work that offers easily the most comprehensive and thought-provoking treatment of English grammar to date.
Within its school, the prevailing one presently, this grammar is unquestionably the authoritative resource. You may have already requested this item. Please select Ok if you would like to proceed with this request anyway.

Recent developments in computational techniques have made possible easier analysis of large amounts of linguistic data. Through such an analysis, CGE is quite comprehensive in detailing the types of structures comprising the English language. Whereas Quirk, Greenbaum, Leech, and Svartvick provided a traditional description of written grammar, and Huddleson and Pullum provide a comprehensive description that is heavily influenced by generative grammar, neither details those structures of spoken English not common to the written form.
Biber, Johansson, Leech, Conrad, and Finegan present frequencies for spoken English as well as various written forms, but their account is not as equally weighted or as comprehensive for both written and spoken grammar as is CGE.
With CGE, we are presented with a more balanced description of the English language as it is used in contemporary times. Along with the explicit description of its written form, a large corpus is drawn upon to complement this with the spoken forms that are in use.
OVERVIEW Any grammar of English needs to describe the structures of the language, from words to more complex structures, as well as aspects of the language that are less structural in character, such as speech acts and tense. To accommodate both the syntactic and semantic perspectives, CGE is divided into two sections and numerous chapters. The second, much larger, section contains a dozen grammar-related topic areas: The last pages of the book are devoted to nine appendices including punctuation, spelling, numbers, time, and measurement , a glossary of grammar terminology, a short bibliography, and a subject index.
The extensive cross-referencing in the print version is accessible at the click of a mouse on the CD, and audio recordings of all of the over 7, example sentences are included. The A to Z section is arranged alphabetically with precise and concise explanations of how the lexical items are used and with numerous and varied example sentences. The entry for about pp. Two of the examples are of commonly made errors in the use of about, indicated as such with a single line stroked through the sentence.
All example sentences, in this section and throughout the book, are italicized, and bold font is used for the part of the sentence focused on. To its credit, CGE contains more examples drawn from spoken English than from the written form. For the about entry, and elsewhere where appropriate, scores of words are listed that about commonly follows.
The influence of the spoken corpus is apparent in the A to Z section, as it is throughout the book. The entry for right pp. The cause of this stir was the description of like as a marker of reported speech e.
This incident punctuates how radically different CGE is in its description of English by including extensive coverage of the spoken forms of the language. Two-thirds of the entry for like, for example, deals with spoken English uses of the word. Following the page A to Z section is the major section of the book — pages of thirty-three chapters on every aspect of grammar and discourse arranged into twelve topic areas.
The format of these chapters is very much like that of the A to Z section. The nature of the subject matter often requires that there be more paragraphs of explanation than in A to Z, but even so, it is kept to a minimum and examples are liberally employed.
Even the chapter with the densest text, Grammar and Academic English, is composed considerably more of examples than of paragraphed text.
