Oxford English Grammar

The Oxford Guide to English Grammar is a systematic account of grammatical forms and the way they are used in standard British English today.

The emphasis is on meanings and how they govern the choice of grammatical patterns.

The book is thorough in its coverage but pays most attention to points that are of importance to intermediate and advanced learners of English, and to their teachers.

It will be found equally suitable for quick reference to details and for the more leisured study of broad grammar topics.

A useful feature of the book is the inclusion of example texts and conversations, many of them authentic, to show how grammar is used in connected writing and in speech.

Language changes all the time. Even though grammar changes more slowly than vocabulary, it is not a set of unalterable rules.

There are sometimes disagreements about what is correct English and what is incorrect. ‘Incorrect’ grammar is often used in informal speech.

Does that make it acceptable? Where there is a difference. between common usage and opinions about correctness, I have pointed this out.

This information is important for learners. In some situations, it may be safer for them to use the form which is traditionally seen as correct.

The use of a correct form in an unsuitable context, however, can interfere with understanding just as much as a mistake.

To help learners to use language which is appropriate for a given occasion, I have frequently marked usages as formal, informal, literary, and so on.

How to use this book

Any user of a reference book of this kind will rely on a full and efficient index, as is provided in the Oxford Guide (pages 404 to 446).

In addition, there is a summary at the beginning of each chapter which gives a bird’s eye view, with examples, of the grammar covered in the chapter as a whole and gives references to the individual sections which follow.

  1. Choose the correct pronouns in brackets to complete the sentences.
    a) It was not we, but they who bought the fireworks.
    b) My sister and I take pride in our singing.
    c) This secret is between you and me.
    d) It is we who are stressing mom and dad.
    e) The Maths teacher is more interesting than she.
  2. Fill in the missing personal, reflexive and possessive pronouns from the list to
    complete the passage that follows.
    It was a cold day in the Little Karoo. The five buck watering themselves at a red stone
    dam looked for the sun but there was none. Instead a cold wind from the north briefly
    stirred, like a cough from the old man who watched them. He pulled his patched coat close
    around himself and squinted along the barrel of the Mauser, itself battered by age.
    Nervous, they sniffed and pawed the iron-hard ground and sniffed that which was not
    theirs and bolted.
  3. Indicate the function of the reflexive pronouns in the following sentences. Say
    whether they function as a direct object, an indirect object, an object of a
    preposition or as a means to emphasise the subject.
    a) I take photos of myself. (myself  object of preposition ‘of’)
    b) My mother herself was passionate about baking. (herself  means to emphasis the
    c) The traffic officer hurt himself on his bike. (himself  direct object)
    d) She bought herself a copy of Atonement. (herself  indirect object)
    e) We decided we would pay for ourselves. (ourselves  object of preposition ‘for’
