Pocket English Grammar
The COBUILD Pocket English Grammar is a handy, new companion for learners of English to carry with them everywhere. Small enough to fit in a pocket, it covers all the most important points of English grammar, explaining them in simple, clear language. The COBUILD Pocket English Grammar is a brand new title created specifically to help learners of English master the language. Based on extensive corpus research into the way English is really used by native speakers, the COBUILD Pocket English Grammar contains all the grammar points you need to know to communicate confidently. With explanations in simple English and thousands of examples from the Collins Corpus, this handy reference is easy to use and easy to understand. It also highlights issues that learners find particularly tricky using warning notes, showing you how to avoid making the same mistakes again! A supplement is included offering information on the grammar of academic English (from text books and journals) and business English (found in meeting rooms and teleconferences across the world).
The premier study Bible used by scholars, pastors, undergraduate and graduate students, The New Oxford Annotated Bible with Apocrypha offers a vast range of information, including extensive notes by experts in their fields; in-text maps, charts, and diagrams; supplementary essays on translation, biblical interpretation, cultural and historical background, and other general topics.
Extensively revised–half of the material is brand new–featuring a new design to enhance readability, and brand-new color maps, the Annotated Fourth Edition adds to the established reputation of this essential biblical studies resource. Many new and revised maps, charts, and diagrams further clarify information found in the Scripture text. In addition, section introductions have been expanded and the book introductions present their information in a standard format so that students can find what they need to know. Of course, the Fourth Edition retains the features prized by students, including single column annotations at the foot of the pages, in-text charts, and maps, a page number-keyed index of all the study materials in the volume, and Oxford’s renowned Bible maps. This timely edition maintains and extends the excellence the Annotated‘s users have come to expect, bringing still more insights, information, and perspectives to bear upon the understanding of the biblical text.
