'This grammar has benefited from extensive collaboration with scholars who have contributed substantial parts to individual chapters. An impressively voluminous piece of work. A reference work that should be available to all grammarians.' Linguist List

'An error-free guide, this latest publication must stand as one of the best analyses of modern English.' Contemporary Review

'… with help from an impressive group of international scholars, linguistics Professors Huddleston (English Grammar: An Outline) and Pullum (Phonetic Symbol Guide) here provide a comprehensive and detailed look at the principles of the English language'… An authoritative addition to the fields of both English grammar and linguistics. Recommended for all academic libraries.' Library Journal

'I have read many excellent accounts of the English language over the years, but this recent publication by Cambridge University Press is by far the most impressive. In fact, I would say the Cambridge Grammar of the English Language is one of the most superb works of academic scholarship ever to appear on the English linguistics scene … a monumental work that offers easily the most comprehensive and thought-provoking treatment of English grammar to date. Nothing rivals this work, with respect to breadth, depth and consistency of coverage.' Australian Book Review

' … this book will take its place alongside the two other reference grammars of recent years, to give students a foundation for the study of English grammar that they have never had before.' The Indexer

'Huddleston and Pullum have done an admirable job …'. Arbeiten aus Anglistik und Amerikanistik

'The Cambridge Grammar of the English Language is a comprehensive descriptive grammar of English designed to be accessible to the general reader … Everything about this book is a credit to the authors and the publishers. It is authoritative, interesting, reasonably priced (for a book of this size), beautifully designed, well proofread, and enjoyable to handle … It is both a modern complement to existing descriptive grammars … and an important resource for anyone interested in working with or finding out about English.' Chris Brew, The Ohio State University

'… very stimulating … It will, deservedly, replace its predecessor A Comprehensive Grammar of the English Language [] and I anticipate that it will give grammarians [] much to argue about for many years to come … continues a respected scholarly tradition.' Language and Literature

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Wer sich von diesem fast-2000-Seiten-Schinken eine Grammatik für Englischlernende erwartet, wird sicherlich enttäuscht sein.
Studenten der englischen Sprachwissenschaft hingegen finden hier ein unvergleichliches Handbuch, das überaus umfangreich wichtige Aspekte der englischen Sprache und die theoretische Beschäftigung mit ihnen darstellt. Durch die zahlreichen Beispiele werden auch kleinste Details des englischen Sprachgebrauchs differenziert erläutert - wo nötig, werden auch mehrere unterschiedliche Ansätze nebeneinander gestellt.
Kurzum: für die theoretische Beschäftigung mit der englischen Sprache eines der hilfreichsten und aktuellsten Werke.

HASH(0x9c1e03fc) von 5 Sternen Magisterial 3. Januar 2008
Von Grammar Fan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This excellent descriptive grammar is currently the most comprehensive and up-to-date account of English grammar available. For someone familiar with an older generation of English grammars, even grammars written by linguists, this work represents a significant rethinking of they way English is described. It incorporates a large body of research that has occurred since the last major grammar of English, A Comprehensive Grammar of the English Language by Quirk et al.

Unlike that earlier book, Huddleston and Pullum are more explicitly theoretical, but they are not wedded to any particular school of syntax and the writing is always accessible to the interested non-specialist. You don't need advanced training in linguistics to understand what the authors are saying. Their analysis explicitly challenges many older ideas about English grammar, and in almost every case they provide clearly reasoned arguments in favor of their position. For example, they argue that many words which have traditionally been understood as adverbs or subordinating conjunctions are better explained as prepositions.

The most detailed arguments, intended for specialists, are clearly set off in blue boxes, so you can avoid the minutiae unless you're interested.

I have noticed a handful of cases where the analysis or terminology seems arbitrary, but in these cases, the authors' decisions are internally consistent. There is only a problem if you are comparing this work to other grammars. For example, Huddleston and Pullum use the terms "determiner" and "determinative" in exactly the opposite way that Quirk et al. do, and do not give any reasons for their switch. Similarly, they treat the perfect as a secondary tense rather than an aspect (the approach taken in many earlier linguistically-based grammars) without explaining why one should prefer one analysis to another.

But such problems are minor in comparison to the vast insight that the work brings to the structure of English. Even if you think you have a good understanding of English grammar, this work will likely open your eyes.

I highly recommend this work if you need a thorough reference grammar and can afford the price. Indeed, if you plan to write a textbook on English, this work is required reading. If you are a student looking for a good introduction, I instead recommend A Student's Introduction to English Grammar by the same authors.

HASH(0x9c1ec03c) von 5 Sternen Words are not enough... 20. Januar 2003
Von Srebrenica Forever - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Dealing with virtually every essential aspect of English grammar, this book will probably achieve a special status at universities worldwide. Never have I seen such a splendid achievement in english studies before! Containing a well-researched and thorough account of all grammatical structures, this book can be used both as a complete reference as well as a meticulous elaboration and analysis of english grammar. I own a great number of well-written english grammar books but this book surpasses all of them in every aspect. Not only because it is very comprehensive and meticulous but also because it assumes a different approach to english grammar. Even though the book has 1300 pages, you will discover how easy it is to find whatever you may be looking for. Further, upon locating the target information, you will learn that the structure of the book facilitates reading and comprehension. Also, unnecessary terminology has been removed from the book in order to ascertain understanding. Needless to say, every serious english student should own this book. Using the word masterpiece to describe this book will not suffice. See for yourself!

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a great book that I anticipate reading and utilising for the next twenty years or more. However, it is unforgivable that the binders should fail to section sew rather than perfect or notch bind this volume. My copy is already showing signs of wear after only a fortnight of use.

HASH(0xa71d93b4) von 5 Sternen Exactly what english grammar was in need of! 4. November 2002
Von Artur Padovan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I have just purchased an exemplar of this book, and although some people might find it rather complicated, I feel certain in saying that it is exactly what english grammar was in need of: a thorough coverage of its features in a modern, descriptive, and factual way; and, where people may call it complicated, i'd rather call it complete and thoroughly detailed. In this wonderful work, obsolete concepts such as Latin principles misleadingly applied to English (which is NOT a romanic language) and traditional spurious justifications are abandoned, and english is faced as the completely unique language it certainly is. Being an inhabitant of a country in which an actually latin language is spoken as its mother one, I know how much such a group of languages diverge from english in so many ways, and thus think this book an extremely appropriate account on english and its unique properties and traits.
Maybe, the trait of the book which pleased me most was its modern way to reorganize determinate parts of English grammar which should have been reviewed right at the dawn of modern english centuries ago. The main problem with previous grammar books was their habit of analysing English as though it were a latin language, attributing to it characteristics it does not intrinsecally contain )which this book promptly denies), such as the existence of an inflectional subjunctive mood.
Therefore, one can really say that what the book does is provide a renewed and much sounder description on the modern language we call english, discarding many old concepts; some that do not really surprise us with their being removed, and others which quite much do! However, I am very sure that this rich descriptive work shall not stand on the book stores' shelves without arousing all kinds of indignant critics from conservative students of the language, specially the older ones, who may have partly helped in the creation of the system disputed by the book.
But I must say that anyone with a reasonable inclination shall understand the authors' propositions and assertions, taking them very seriously, for those are based on extremely well - formulated and sensible arguments; actually, i doubt someone open - minded could read the book from beggining to end without at least having a couple of former opinions and beliefs changed by the practicaly irrefutable evidences displayed by the authors as proofs of the applicability of their propositions.
I hope this book has more purchasers, and, consequently, more reviews so that debates about important grammar issues may start, for I believe that this newer, sounder analysis of English language need be displayed to all advanced English students, in order that important and inevitable reformulations in its unfortunately obsolete grammar concepts happen. Whoever has love for this language, like myself, shall be glad to debate, and this is an appeal i direct even to the highest authorities among teachers and grammarians.
