is descriptive grammar?
grammar is grammar that takes account of how a language is really used,
not necessarily of how it should be used. Often the two are the same,
but descriptive grammar is much quicker on the uptake when it comes to
adapting to new ways of using a language. It also takes account of the
spoken language as well as the written language. Descriptive grammar is
not grammar without rules; but the rules that it proposes are based on
contemporary usage, not on some historic precepts.
Linguapress grammar resources are cited by universities colleges and
websites worldwide, including - in the USA - Yale University
Center for Teaching and Learning or the University of Washington Library
guides and - in the UK - by the Cambridge
Encyclopedia of the English Language or Aston University
Library, and many more institutions and webguides in the
English-speaking world and beyond.
