English Grammar Made Difficult! Volume 2.
Taylor, Lee Roger, Jr.
This volume contains the final 15 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 in this programmed text cover: (14) the predicate nominative; (15) the predicate adjective; (16) the predicate; (17) the sentence I; (18) clauses and phrases I; (19) clauses and phrases II; (20) sentences II; (21) sentences III; (22) sentences IV; (23) sentence intonation and punctuation I; (24) sentence intonation and punctuation II; (25) the infinitive; (26) the participle and the gerund; (27) sentence expansion describer patterns; and (28) word order. 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)
