Aspects of Future Reference in a Pedagogical Grammar of English

Series:

Michael Sharwood Smith

This study sets out a theoretical approach to designing pedagogical grammars based on both psychological and linguistic principles in an attempt to devise a principled rather than electic way in which to select and present language data to the learner. These principles are illustrated by means of an investigation into verbal means of expressing future time in English and into suitable ways of presenting the relevant facts in a pedagogical grammar.
