Mysteries of English Grammar

Despite a history of hundreds of years of research analysing aspects of English grammar, there are still open problems which continue to baffle language researchers today. Such ‘grammar mysteries’ arise for a number of reasons: because the language is changing; because different speakers of the language adhere to distinct norms and thus introduce and maintain variation in the system; because there are differences between the grammar of spoken and written English. This book illuminates some of the complexities of the subject, the areas where new discoveries await and why it matters. Through a series of accessible and engaging case studies on various aspects of grammar, from multiple negation to possession, the authors present grammar as an intellectual challenge. This book brings out into the open questions about language usage to which we still do not have good answers in a bid to make variation overt and to revel in the mystery of the English language. Both aimed at the interested general reader and the beginning student of English language and linguistics, this is a fresh take on grammar.

The Perfect Spoken English Phonetics with the Best Concise English Grammar for Learners

 The Perfect Spoken English   Phonetics with the Best Concise English Grammar for Learners

ABOUT THE BOOK:- This book has been compiled concisely and written English to English. This book contains three books such as; 1. A key to the Perfect Spoken English, 2. The Perfect English Phonetics, 3. The Best Concise English Grammar & composition. Addition of three kinds of small books is finally produced as a complete book which is sub titled “A key to the Perfect Spoken English & Phonetics with the best concise English Grammar & Composition for keen learners” mostly needed not only for students of high school and college but also for keen learners. As far as I am concerned that it may be very useful up to college students and for keen learners those who do not know proper English and correct phonetics. I think this kind of book is rarely found in the market. As far as I know and hope that this kind of book might not have published before. There is no limit of level or age or class and duration for learning it; one who is eager to learn can learn at anywhere/any time/any year by having this book. This book gives you not only fundamental but also how you will be able to speak the perfect English throughout the world. It’s the primary key to success. The book has been written with the sole purpose of enlightening & enriching the readers about English grammar & Phonetics with the process of spoken English which will be very useful to all those who go through it; especially to new learners to get some ideas and knowledge in English language which is mostly used in spoken in day today’s life. ABOUT THE PERFECT ENGLISH PHONETICS:- Phonetics is the symbols to represent each different speech sounds, their pronunciation & script. The English language is meaningless without the phonetics; so one should know the correct sound of each word; otherwise he won’t be able to get what someone speaks or expresses. This kind of book is rarely found in the market for Indian students & keen learners those who really need it. Thus I have collected the phonetics from Oxford Dictionary & different kinds of books to make you easy to get. I hope that it will help us to get what someone wants to say meaningfully. It is also very important to know because there are some words which don’t sound but have to be spelt as-tsunami /tsu:’nα:mi/ here ‘t’ is silent, bristle /’brIsl/ here also ‘t’ silent; so in this case one can’t come to know all the words without studying phonetics . If one knows the phonetics perfectly then he/she can speak or write in English frankly without fearing about it & everyone gets him that what he/she says. The basic knowledge of phonetics is enough to help us to acquire correct pronunciation. If we speak phonetically; then we may not face problem in writing or speaking in any necessary action. It is the only one language by knowing one can travel all over the world where English is used as a second or a foreign language. ABOUT THE BEST CONCISE ENGLISH GRAMMAR AND COMPOSITION:- This book is written concisely in perfection from Mr.Wren & Martin'S English Grammar Book from fundamental Grammar (root level). You can extend your thoughts and examples from it to get the thorough knowledge. It is up to you whether you grow branches from your root; I mean creativity, extendable thoughts and grasping examples. The more you practice the more you get; beacue we all know that there is saying "Practice makes a man perfect". It is great personal & professional satisfaction brought you by a new compilation. In our country the English language is taught as second language. This book develops communicative skills & elocution. It has been written in brief & concisely so that students can grasp quickly without taking long duration apart from their studies; especially for keen learners who don’t get enough time being in their busy life & profession can give less time for learning proper English & Phonetics. I hope & i am sure that you will find English as easy if you really go through it thoroughly & put in practice giving more interest. I am hopeful that this book will be found useful mostly in our Odisha, India and in other places too; especially in India where English is used as a second or foreign language. I have been endeavored to refer writings of several authors in the form of books to bring this book out. By Hener Compiler

Logical English Grammar

Dear English students, teachers and interested party, this book you hold in your hand is very valuable to learn and teach English grammar with a system of clear definitions and in a logical way. I found out that in different grammar books and also different teachers from English schools are used different descriptions for the same meaning. When I was an English language student in Cambridge (UK), 2017, the English grammar was confused for me, because I`m a logical thinker and I will learn with a system, but I couldn`t found a logical system to learn the English grammar. The most problem was that I found different descriptions for the same meaning in different grammar books. As example in some grammar books is written Simple Past and in others Past Simple, but it is still the same. But also continuous and progressive is the same. Another difficult point was the English Tenses, because I couldn`t find a table with all Tenses so I don`t know how many they has. Also here was the problem that for the same Tense I found different descriptions. As example the Past continuous is the same as Past progressive. Another problem was that also different teachers used different descriptions for the same Tense. In some cases they described and explained the Past progressive and other teachers call them Past continuous although it is the same. Completely confused was that this Past progressive in some grammar book is called Past continuous too. This book offers you to learn grammar in a short time, because it is logical and it is a summary of different sources. Don`t waste your time anymore to research in different books to find out what`s the meaning, definitions and descriptions is. This book solving a lot of problems which students have and it is in a compact form. With this book you save money and time. Sincerely M.A. Jaun

The Lost Secret of Speaking Perfect English

Do you want to learn The Lost Secret of Speaking Perfect English? The Moving Mouth Dictionary technique provides a very simple approach to perfecting English speaking and pronunciation. The book takes a down-to-earth approach for speaking clear English, as it breathes some fresh air into the stuffy corridors of academic learning. It is geared to help students and business people speak impressive and naturally clear English, taking much of the guessing out of pronunciation and spelling. English will become more of a physical activity, rather than a cerebral academic subject. The key is in identifying and improving specifi c types of reverse and forward mouth movements, actions based on using simple vertical mouth movement notations that have simple associations with key phonetics sounds for specifi c letters. The technique’s forward and reverse mouth movements combined with a natural English rhythm also helps trigger and access vocabulary and verbs, while aiding in word retention, fl uency and auto correcting. The book features a dictionary of over 11,000 words, including some of the most diffi cult words in the English language, which have been broken down, putting these notations into “mouthables.” The process draws heavily on early humans’ natural ability to howl and growl, using their mouths vertically. Hence, the lost connection between our near ancestors can aid our ability to speak clear English, an ability we have lost and need to rediscover.
