A practical guide to discovering how the English language works, Doing Grammar is a compact volume that is essential for students in advanced grammar courses. Using an engaging style, Max Morenberg uses modern linguistic theories to build upon traditional models and provides accessible explanations about the composition of sentences, illustrating them at every step with diagrams and other visual models. Using real-life sentences as examples and exercises, the author clarifies the study of grammar without oversimplifying the concepts.For the fifth edition, Doing Grammar retains its unique voice and clarity, while the book has been reorganized to begin with more accessible concepts first, starting with Parts of Speech, so it presents a more intuitive progression of topics. This new edition also contains expanded coverage on syntax, punctuation, style and usage, and more current grammar anecdotes throughout that will give the reader a sense of how English varies, with special attention paid to ESL/ELL topics, and new compositional contexts like social media (how does one punctuate a Tweet?). Doing Grammar, 5th edition features an updated glossary of terms, as well as new pedagogical elements added to each chapter, including boxes on practical issues, such as controversies in grammar (e.g., the wording of the second amendment), as well as new "Try This" exercises following most major lessons, and end-of-chapter summaries and critical thinking questions to engage students from across disciplinary backgrounds (English, Education, Linguistics Anthropology, etc).
