The world's greatest authority on language explains the secrets and subtleties of the grammar of English.

David Crystal explores its history and varieties, explains its rules and irregularities and shows how to navigate its snares and pitfalls.

He gives practical guidance on how grammar is used in different ways for different purposes and in different social settings.

In a series of revealing illustrations he also considers what learned and prominent people have said about English grammar over the centuries.

Like its three companion volumes Making Sense will appeal to everyone interested in the English language and how to use it.
