I know there was a discussion quite recently about grammar books. A
colleague proposes to teach a one semester college level course on
descriptive English grammar and is looking for a text. I suggested the new
book by Anita Barry, English Grammar:Language as Human Behavior, but the
cost is $50+. Any other suggestions, maybe in paperback?
