A Glossary of Grammatical Terms: An Aid to the Student of Languages.
Gerson, Stanley
This book is a glossary of traditional grammatical terms for students of modern languages. It attempts to describe, rather than to define, the technical vocabulary of language learning. Illustrative material, usually descriptive of English usage, is provided on the principle that if the student knows how his own language operates, he will be better able to know how a foreign language operates. Etymologies are given for all terms of Latin, Greek, and Romance origin. The terms in the glossary are used in grammars of the major European languages but are of varying importance in descriptions of such non-Indo-European languages as Chinese and Arabic. Some phonetic terminology and some terms from modern linguistics, such as morpheme and allophone, are also included. (Author/DI)
