A Chinese Grammar for English Speakers offers a systematic presentation and careful explanations of Chinese grammar, including the use of punctuation and copious amounts of cultural and historical information about the Chinese language. One unique feature of this grammar is its comparative approach: it explicates and compares Chinese grammar with that of English and points out the areas of differences and similarities, thus making the Chinese language more accessible to English learners. Another distinguishing feature of this grammar is its basis in praxis rather than theory; it is user-friendly and avoids jargon. It may serve as both a reference grammar and a pedagogical grammar and provides a wealth of illustrative sentences with pinyin and English translations along with a wide range of vocabulary. It presents grammar from the broad spectrum of humanities rather than from a single, isolated discipline or via a long list of dry rules.
