In these posters, David Crystal explores how grammar works in context, starting with the essential question, ‘What is grammar for?’
He covers the nuts and bolts of grammar, from sentence construction to word classes, writing in a characteristically simple and appealing style.
Friendly and example-led, David Crystal's grammar posters are an accessible jumping-off point for whole class discussion and targeted grammar work, as well as providing an attractive and invaluable form of reference for KS3-5, ESOL or EAL learners.

'The grammar road is long and winding, and it's important to travel along it slowly, step by step, otherwise you can easily get lost.
For these ten posters I've chosen some of the basic notions that provide the foundation for any study of grammar, and begin with a signpost explaining why you need to make the journey at all.'
