Teaching Grammar Structure and meaning.

Teaching Grammar, Structure and Meaning introduces teachers to some basic ideas
from the increasingly popular field of cognitive linguistics as a way of explaining and
teaching important grammatical concepts. Particularly suitable for those teaching
post-16 English Language, this book offers a methodology for teaching major aspects
of linguistic form and an extensive set of learning activities. Written by an experienced
linguist and teacher, this book contains:
• an evaluation of current approaches to the teaching of grammar and linguistic
form;
• a revised pedagogy based on principles from cognitive science and cognitive
linguistics;
• a comprehensive set of activities and resources to support the teaching of the main
linguistic topics and text types;
• a detailed set of suggestions for further reading and a guide to available resources.
Arguing for the use of drama, role play, gesture, energy dynamics and visual and spatial
representations as ways of enabling students to understand grammatical features, this
book explores and analyses language use in a range of text types, genres and contexts.
This innovative approach to teaching aspects of grammar is aimed at English teachers,
student teachers and teacher trainers.
