The Longman Grammar of Spoken and Written English is a revolutionary, corpus-based reference grammar of English, based on a groundbreaking research project to analyze the ways in which English grammar is really used. The book looks at four text types ¿ conversation, fiction, news reportage, and academic prose ¿ and reports statistical findings as well as examining the reasons that condition a particular grammatical choice.
