English Grammar Made Difficult! Volume 1.
Taylor, Lee Roger, Jr.
This volume contains the first 13 of 28 individualized programmed units on basic English grammar, intended for use in developmental or guided studies for students with deficiences in English. The units may be used separately or in sequence as a comprehensive course. The approach taken is neither wholly traditional (prescriptive) or transformational (proscriptive), but is a structural and functional examination in a sarcastic and humorous vein of the language we speak and write. In general, rules are ignored, and functional descriptions are emphasized only after their use has been observed. In each unit, the unit objective is specified, terms are defined, and exercises intended to facilitate student learning are included. The units cover: (1) introduction; (2) nouns; (3) pronouns; (4) adjectives; (5) verbs; (6) adverbs; (7) prepositions; (8) conjunctions and interjections; (9) finding verbs; (10) the subject; (11) introduction to the verb cluster; (12) the direct object; and (13) the indirect object. For each unit, relevant references are listed. A student self-test is included at the end of each unit, followed by an answer key. (Author/JDS)
