Chapter

Abstract

In Chapters 8, 9 and 10 we examined how knowledge of grammar can be used to analyse language as used by others, whether in speech or writing, in non-literary discourse or literature. In this chapter and the next we shall investigate how we can apply what we know about grammar to the choices we make in our own use of language. So the focus changes from our role as consumers to our role as producers of language, or from analysis to synthesis (see p. 114).
