Summaries
Main Description
Integrating grammar and composition, this comprehensive new textbook guides the advanced student through progressively more complex types of writing by organizing the grammar lessons on a functionalist basis around the needs of composition. This approach promotes systematic language development as part of the preparation for each task. The book focuses on work in six level-appropriate types of composition: description, synopsis, personal narrative, creative narrative, exposition, and argumentation. Refined by eight years of classroom testing and error analysis of the problems students encounter, this book incorporates current research in composition, second-language acquisition, and linguistics.
