Foreword Charles Schuster America the Grammarless The First Liberal Art We've Passed This Way Before The War Against Grammar Grammar at the Dawn of the Third Millenium.
"The War Against Grammar disagrees with the establishment view that the teaching of traditional grammar is a waste of classroom time. According to David Mulroy, both history and commonsense make clear that students benefit from diagramming and learning their parts of speech - both during their school years and beyond. Drawing upon his classical training, Mulroy offers a close reading of the history of language study and of linguistic research to support his view that English teaching must revitalize grammar education - and that it will produce a generation better able to read and write complex texts."--BOOK JACKET.
