The layout of the book largely follows the nature of the subjects dealt with: English grammar, phonetics, history of English, language teaching, language in general, international language and miscellaneous papers.

This volume, originally published by Winthrop Publishers in 1977, discusses transformational grammar in relation to traditional and structural grammar, enabling students to relate the theory to what they already know about grammar. Although all important technical terms and processes are presented, non-technical language is used as much as possible. Examples from literature and from actual language usage are employed throughout the book, and one section is devoted to practical applications to writing, reading, and literary criticism, and the understanding of dialects. A comprehensive glossary is provided.
