Reference for students and teachers covers over 250 terms using examples from texts that range from Shakespeare, Mark Twain and Emily Dickinson to current works from time magazine and the scientist
Provides information on familiar terms such as noun, subject and predicate, and on more obscure ones such as absolute construction, aspect and modality
Author does this to get away from the sort of trivial examples common to most grammar texts ("The fox chased the hare.") and to show that real people in the real world use many complex grammar features
Illustrative examples come from over 100 real-life texts that are at the heart of the dictionary, because they serve to illustrate the points of grammar
Terms are drawn from traditional grammar and the most recent work in universal grammar
Grammar dictionary gives detailed and accessible information on familiar terms such as "noun", "subject" and "predicate", and also on more obscure but equally important ones such as "absolute construction", "aspect" and "modality"
