Increased interest in grammar and the Australian Curriculum: English, has stimulated a demand for this updated edition of e:lit's bestselling text. It is now organised around the main functions that language plays in our lives - interacting with others, structuring coherent texts, and expressing and connecting ideas, and extends, for the first time, into secondary schooling. The new edition addresses the grammar requirements within the Australian Curriculum: English with links to specific Content Descriptors and Outcomes. The text employs standard grammatical terminology, but it also uses terms which allow for a more functional interpretation.
