Drawing on vast amounts of new data from live, unscripted radio and TV
broadcasts, and the internet, this is a brilliant and original analysis of colloquial English, revealing unusual and largely unreported types of clause structure. Andrew Radford debunks the myth that colloquial English has a substandard, simplified grammar, and shows that it has a coherent and complex structure of its own. The book develops a theoretically sophisticated
account of structure and variation in colloquial English, advancing an area
that has been investigated from other perspectives, such as corpus linguistics
or conversational analysis, but never before in such detail from a formal
syntactic viewpoint. 

ANDREW RADFORD is Emeritus Professor at the University of Essex. He has
written nine books on syntactic theory and English syntax, including Syntactic Theory and the Structure of English (1997), Minimalist Syntax (2004) and Analysing English Sentences (2016), all published by Cambridge University Press.
