An engaging and fresh take on the rules and politics of English grammar, written in lively prose. It goes a step further than most books on grammar by providing an overview of the field, with a discussion of historical and current debates about grammar, and how we define, discuss, and approach it. Presents a novel, inquiry-based approach to understanding speakers' unconscious knowledge of English grammar Examines historical sources of socially evaluative perceptions of grammar, as 'good' or 'bad', and the notion of language authority Gives an overview of the history of modern punctuation, the arbitrary roots of many modern rules, and how many punctuation rules make no grammatical sense Charts the development of the study of grammar in the Western tradition -- from Aristotle to Chomsky --including semiotic and structuralist theories Looks at the controversy over grammar as part of the public school curriculum, how assessment has changed, and the history of the role of grammar in education
