Hello language-lovers!

This is going to be a ‘work-in-progress’. It will take time, but the aim is to create  a comprehensive set of language study materials. The focus will be on knowledge of key concepts and practical reinforcement.

I’m going to start with the basics because a secure foundation makes the transition to higher levels of grammar more manageable. I want to make you feel confident about analysis at phrase, clause and sentence level. It’s not as difficult as you think and, for those of you following examination courses, examiners love to see discussion that moves beyond word classes!

I hope this site will be useful to teachers and students who study language formally, but also to anyone who has a general interest in language, or a desire to know more about the ways in which language works. I welcome comments and questions so get in touch and let me know what you would like to see appearing on these pages …
