This book is designed to revise and consolidate grammar points at the level of Council
of Europe Framework (CEF)Bl and B2. It assumes that some basic points have been
covered. These can be practised in Macmillan English Grammar In Context Essential.
The practice material includes a wide range of topics to reflect both everyday language
use and the kinds of subjects learners might be studying in schools or colleges.
This edition of the book is in its scope and method the same as the first; the material and its
arrangement remain basically unchanged. But there were in the first edition some omissions
in the treatment of adverbs and links (conjunctions) which have been made good. Also a
large part of the section on reported speech has been rewritten with additional examples and
exercises in order to make the approach to this aspect of English grammar both more
extensive and more flexible.
Communication generally means putting words together to express your thoughts in context. Before you can put words together effectively, you must comprehend basic language concepts. This book emphasizes an understanding of key grammatical concepts over the memorization of individual words.
Engaging, explicit lessons using mini-excerpts from books and students’ writing show you how to teach grammar strategically. Zero in on the common grammar glitches, and model for students how to use nouns, verbs, and adjectives effectively, catch mismatched pronoun references; make prose lively with clauses and phrases, use the active voice, and more. From learning the parts of speech to the skill of paragraphing, this book covers it, and gives you what you need to teach grammar in the context of reading and writing. For use with Grades 4-8....
This paper describes an algorithm for computing optimal structural descriptions for Optimality Theory grammars with context-free position structures. This algorithm extends Tesar's dynamic programming approach (Tesar, 1994) (Tesar, 1995@ to computing optimal structural descriptions from regular to context-free structures. The generalization to contextfree structures creates several complications, all of which are overcome without compromising the core dynamic programming approach.

Business Vocabulary in Use Elementary provides basic, essential vocabulary in a business context for learners of Business English. Business Vocabulary in Use Elementary follows the same successful approach as the tried and tested In Use vocabulary and grammar books, with vocabulary presentation and explanation on the left-hand page and practice on the right-hand page. The book comprises a number of thematic sections including work, time, money, products, services; and Skills units including numbers, telephoning, emails and faxes, meetings and presentations.
It takes a clear and structured approach to grammar. Grammatical structures are introduced in context, with questions that encourage students to work out the rules for themselves.
