English grammar

last changed in 2002

The main achievement of WG research is a more or less consistent analysis of English grammar which is exhaustive in the sense that it provides an analysis for almost every word in almost any text. It barely scratches the surface of semantic linkage, lexical valency and word formation. This encyclopedia contains the main outlines of the analysis, but more detail can be found in my books English Word Grammar and English Grammar. There is also a sample analysis of a 100-word text.
