    Question Discriptive Grammar

    Hi,

    Im studying English at university and am doing a course which is called "Discriptive Grammar" at the moment. Somehow I have some difficulties understanding certain things like (word order, colonel sentences, Non-Colonel Sentences, declarative sentences, Fronting, Inversion, sentence types, sentential periphery) I also have difficulties to say wether a sentence is grammatically correct or not, wether the grammar of a sentence is acceptable, appropriate.... I am looking for a good book and thought that you might be able to help me and that you might know a book which you could recommend. I have no difficulties with tenses though.

    Thanks a lot for your help!

    All best

    Britt

    you are really my last help.. I found some books on amazon but really do not know wether they are of any help and they are all very expensive and I do not want to waste money.

    So any help really is much much appreciated.

    All best

    to have/Longamn do a thorough guide to spoken and written English. It is, however, rather expensive, but they do have a cheaper edition. Do feel free to ask any specific questions here as well.
