Blogging about grammar

With my background in lexicography, I generally think of myself as a bit of a ‘words girl’ and I do a lot of work around teaching vocabulary. Recently though, I’ve been straying into the area of grammar and collaborating with Penny Hands and Damian Williams on a series of posts on the Collins ELT blog to mark the launch of the new edition of the COBUILD English Grammar.collins-cobuild-pack-shotMy first post saw me on familiar ground considering the overlap between grammar and vocabulary. Look out for more posts appearing over the coming weeks exploring different areas of grammar. Each post is accompanied by a downloadable worksheet that may be useful for advanced learners or trainee teachers to think through the issues raised.
