Review

`The entries in Practical English Usage are not only informed by Swan's authoritative knowledge of English grammar, but by a sure sense of which aspects of the grammar are likely to be problematic, and how these can be most effectively explained.' Henry Widdowson, Emeritus Professor of Education, University of London
