Two Grammatical Models of Modern English. The Old and the New from A to Z. Germanic Linguistic Series.
Case studies provide detailed comparisons, arranged alphabetically by title for ease of reference, of 26 problems in Modern English grammar, from both the old grammar (OG) and new grammar (NG) viewpoints. This A-Z approach juxtaposes contributions made by OG and NG to the description of Modern English grammar. Part I surveys large OG and NG grammars of Modern English, emphasizing the coherence of OG as an open approach to Modern English and NG as a narrow approach. Part II takes up NG attitudes to OG. Part III contains the A-Z core: an alphabetical series of points of Modern English Grammar, for each of which both OG and NG accounts are represented. The detailed practical case studies in part III give substance to the general points outlined in parts I and II. Contains approximately 150 references. (LB)
