A Descriptive Grammar of English
- Reviewed in TESOLANZ bulletin, New Zealand."All good useful stuff and made very user friendly with clear formatting and colour coding. ... a useful, compact grammar reference, especially for new teachers and those who want to improve their confidence in teaching grammar."
- Reviewed in EFL Magazine. "This is a useful reference book to have on hand when planning for and teaching grammar lessons. The clarity of explanations and wealth of examples, alongside helpful visual keys, provide both new and experienced teachers with something easy to dip into, regardless of the language level they are teaching."
- Reviewed in ELTAF Online bulletin, Germany. "This book is ... very extensive without being too deep or analytical. The author seems to have a great understanding of many of the challenges that teachers and learners have, and tries to combat these challenges to make the English language more accessible for all."

- As a reference grammar, it explains and illustrates all the essential principles of contemporary English grammar;
- As a pedagogical grammar it does so in a way that is designed to clarify and demystify the rules, not to complicate them;
- And as a concise grammar, it concentrates on the fundamentals of English grammar, cutting through the jargon to explain them with...

Andrew Rossiter was for many years chair of the department of Applied Languages at the University of Franche-Comt in Besanon, France. He spent most of his career teaching in universities in France, and has been guest lecturer at universities elsewhere in Europe. This title is the fruit of over thirty years of teaching English, giving the author a broad-ranging insight into the difficulties of the English language and English grammar, as perceived by speakers of other languages as well as by native English speakers.
