‘This 4th edition of  ‘An Introduction to English Grammar’, first published almost a quarter of a century ago, is testimony to the book’s enduring appeal. Gerald Nelson has managed to improve the attractiveness of this already successful textbook. Students will welcome the lucid and accessible style, the detailed demonstration of how the grammatical concepts presented are relevant to issues of usage and writing, the use of ‘real’ corpus-derived examples and extracts, and the up-to-date discussion of emails and tweets. Further user-friendly features include graded exercises, a comprehensive glossary and helpful suggestions for further reading.’ Peter Craig Collins, University of New South Wales, Australia
