When Schmid applies this to conventional English grammar, the structure of the language springs to life and, because it is placed into relationship with other aspects of human experience, it becomes much easier to grasp and remember and use correctly. Anyone teaching grammar to any class, whether in a school or at home, will find that using this approach opens vistas of understanding – for teacher as well as students. Very highly recommended!
The Language before Babel, this book takes a poetic and in-depth look at sentence composition, parts of speech, sentence mood, and sentence movement. There are many wonderful examples taken from the works of masters of American and European literature.
