Longman Student Grammar of Spoken and Written English - Douglas Biber, Susan Conrad, Geoffrey Leech - 2003


Название: Longman Student Grammar of Spoken and Written English - 2003.

Автор: Douglas Biber, Susan Conrad, Geoffrey Leech

This book is a course book and a reference grammar for students and their
teachers. Although it is based on the Longman Grammar of Spoken and
Written English (LGSWE), the Student Grammar is much more than just an
abbreviated LGSWE. Rather, we have simplified and reorganized the content of
the LGSWE, avoiding much technical detail while retaining the strengths of the
larger book. For example, like the LGSWE, the Student Grammar contains
over 3,000 authentic English examples, and contrasts the major patterns of use in
spoken and written registers. However, we have simplified the presentation when
possible; for example, we have tried hard to find new and simpler extracts from
our corpus data, often replacing more complex examples in LGSWE.

Longman Student Grammar of Spoken and Written English - Douglas Biber, Susan Conrad, Geoffrey Leech



Of the five authors of LGSWE, we three owe a debt of gratitude to our two
other co-authors: Stig Johansson and Ed Finegan. We benefited from the work
that Stig and Ed did on the LGSWE during our writing of the Student
Grammar. We would also like to thank the students in English 528 at Northern
Arizona University, who used a draft of the Student Grammar as their grammar
textbook and provided numerous helpful comments and suggestions for
revision.
To support the educational use of the Student Grammar, we have also
written a Workbook, which can be used as a classroom textbook or for self-study
by students. The Workbook provides exercises based on authentic English texts
and sentences, linked directly to the Grammar Bites in the present book.
