Paul J. Hopper (Author, Carnegie Mellon University)


New for grammar courses, A Short Course in Grammar offers a streamlined, thorough presentation in an easy to use format.

Recognizing that the goal of the grammar course is to improve students’ grasp of American English grammar, and not to make students into linguists, Paul Hopper has written a streamlined, concise textbook. He avoids getting caught up in details that are interesting to linguists but confusing to students, keeping his steady focus on presenting material as briefly and as clearly as possible.
