Grammar is the discipline for studying English. Without the rules of grammar, the meanings and functions of English language would be lost. This course introduces to ESL/EFL teachers and students the comprehensive knowledge of English syntax in terms of Functional and Prescriptive Grammar. Applying syntactic rules correctly can facilitate spoken and written communications, efficient negotiation of meanings, and effective analysis of English rhetoric for academic and vocational purposes. The emphasis is on using grammar not just as a set of rules but also as the functions of discourse in terms of field, tenor and mode.
