Description:
Making modern English grammar accessible to beginners
This is a community for anyone who wants to learn about English grammar, or wants to share their knowledge. The focus here is on descriptive grammar - how grammar really works - and not for complaining about non-standard usage. We aim to answer questions like how many tenses there are in English, what the deal is with the passive voice, and why there are so many contradictory models of grammar.

Generally, the community advocates current descriptions put forward by mainstream linguists. That means preference to modern rather than traditional terminology.
