This text is for advanced undergraduate and graduate students interested in contemporary English, especially those whose primary area of interest is English as a second language, primary or secondary-school education, English stylistics, theoretical and applied linguistics, or speech pathology. The emphasis is on empirical facts of English rather than any particular theory of linguistics; the text does not assume any background in language or linguistics. In this newly revised edition numerous example sentences are taken from the Corpus of Contemporary American English. A full glossary of key terms, an additional chapter on pedagogy and new sections on cognitive semantics and politeness have been added. Other changes include: completely updated print references; web links to sites of special interest and relevance; and a revised, reader-friendly layout. A companion website that includes a complete workbook with self-testing exercises and a comprehensive list of web links accompanies the book. The website can be found at the following address: https://doi.org/10.1075/z.156.workbook.

Students completing the text and workbook will acquire: a knowledge of the sound system of contemporary English; an understanding of the formation of English words; a comprehension of the structure of both simple and complex sentence in English; a recognition of complexities in the expression of meaning; an understanding of the context and function of use upon the structure of the language; and an appreciation of the importance of linguistic knowledge to the teaching of English to first and second-language learners.

Laurel J. Brinton is Professor of English Language at the University of British Columbia.

Donna M. Brinton is Senior Lecturer in TESOL at the University of Southern California's Rossier School of Education.

The Linguistic Structure of Modern English is a revised edition of The Structure of Modern English by Laurel J. Brinton (2000).

“As somebody who has been experimenting with finding the ideal textbook for classes on the structure of English for about ten years, I truly welcome Brinton's contribution to this genre. Brinton's textbook is unique in its combination of density and breadth of topics, lecture style and self-assessment, and its richness of data from contemporary English.”
“We are not really educated until we understand the language in which we speak, write, and think. No one can work with language or literature who does not know how language works. Laurel Brinton’s textbook The Structure of Modern English tells how the English language works, and does so with clarity, comprehensiveness, and interest. This is a first-rate introduction to the most basic of human abilities and the most important of human capacities: language. It involves its reader with a skillful system of self-correcting exercises on CD-ROM. This is a linguistic textbook for the 21st century.”
