Angela Downing promoted as ‘Author of the month’ by Routledge early in the summer for her revised and updated third edition of English Grammar A University Course, which was published by Routledge earlier this year in Abingdon, UK and New York: published in hard back, paperback and as an ebook. ISBN: 978-0-415-73276-3 (hbk) ISBN: 978-0-415-73268-0 (pbk) iSBN:1-315-75004-0 (ebk). The text has been slightly shortened and simplified. Numerous new authentic texts, both spoken and written, have been introduced to illustrate the grammar of both British and American English. An answer key is provided for all exercises. There is also a companion website, which contains a set of totally new exercises, which together with a few ‘brain teasers’, comprise a short course.
