Your indispensable guide to problems in English

Practical English Usage answers the questions that teachers and learners ask about English grammar and vocabulary, using clear corpus-informed explanations and examples. The 600+ entries have been revised and updated for the 4th edition.

Practical English Usage is now organised in two parts (grammar and vocabulary), making it easier than ever to find the answers, either online or in print.

Part 1 is a complete practical learner’s grammar with 28 sections, covering all the structural points that cause problems for learners.

Part 2 is a guide to vocabulary problems covering:

• Rules for word formation and spelling

• A survey of high-priority vocabulary areas

• An A–Z guide to over 250 common word problems
