Explaining English Grammar: A Guide to Explaining Grammar for Teachers of English as a Second Or Foreign Language. | George Yule
10 posts | 1 reading | 3 to read
The aim of this book is to provide teachers with a fresh approach to thinking about English grammar, Each chapter focuses on a problematic area, for example "Articles", "Conditionals", and "Direct and indirect speech". First the basic grammatical form is described, and then the meaning distinctions conveyed by particular forms. The final section of each chapter shows how meaning can be shaped by context and communicative purpose. The book includes exercises, teaching ideas, and a glossary.

I must say, I was suprised with the score, not only because I'm not a native English speaker, but also because I rarely use English in my daily life.

AmyG I was shocked I got 25/25. I am wondering if everyone gets that score. 😳 3mo

freyaheart Right! People on my time line kept saying "where's the snow?" Meanwhile I just want them all to take the snow and stuff it. 3y
PenguinInFlight @freyaheart mine too! They are mad because the storm is smaller than anticipated, they would be mad if the storm was in full force...can't win! LOL. (I have almost 2 feet of snow from the storm. I'm good. Winter can be over.) 3y

C'mon, where's the love for Weird Al? He's made one of the best songs possible for bibliophiles everywhere! Bask in its parody wit and pomp. Who digs this song? 😎👌🏻 https://youtu.be/8Gv0H-vPoDc #LitsyHumor

MamaGina I Love It❣️ 3y
BookHermit I ❤Word Crimes! The words to the original are borderline offensive but the song has such a great beat and the parody lets me enjoy it guilt free. Love Weird Al! He's a genius! 3y
rubyslippersreads ❤ The Oxford comma! 😄 3y

drokka I suspect someone was having a walmart averse day at the printer's. 3y
Redwritinghood I would argue triple dumb - I don't think they're (or their) insuring anything either. But I tend to be overzealous about language. 3y
peaknit Wow. Is it wrong to pray this is just poorly translated?? I just want to throw someone a bone! 3y
suvata Wow. Just. Wow. 😖 3y
CouronneDhiver They sell books there... obviously nothing related to grammar?! Ugh 😑 3y
Ubookquitous I count 4 - 2 "they're/their/there errors, insure/ensure, and the word order issue 3y
OrangeMooseReads Well it is "the Walmarts" ? 3y
LazyLimaLife What. The. Heck. It's one thing if it was handwritten but this was printed! Guess that's why it's Walmart, not Wal-Smart. 3y
britt_brooke @OrangeMooseReads 😆👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 3y
QuietlyLaura @OrangeMooseReads At first I was laughing until I realized I know people who talk like that! Crying now. 3y
Vexingcircumstance That's at a Walmart? I've never seen one that bad before. Did you take the photo? I'd not i would almost wonder if it was photoshopped. 3y
SaraFair Do they have a make-your-own-sign machine at Walmart? Or could this have been sent from corporate in Arkansas??? 3y
OrangeMooseReads @thirstyreader I people that talk like that too. It's like nails on a chalkboard to me. 3y
