At last, some limited electronic CGEL access

« previous post | next post »

I’m pleased to say that, after considerable delay, Cambridge University Press has now set up on its website some limited electronic access to The Cambridge Grammar of the English Language. Amazon also has some search-inside access too, both at amazon.com and amazon.co.uk. The chapter we chose for making searchable online is a particularly useful one, in that it is largely free-standing: it is chapter 2, called “Syntactic overview”, in which Rodney Huddleston surveys the structure and terminology of the entire book, giving a capsule version of the analysis that is elaborated in the following chapters.

Someone has pointed out to me, though, an error (the word storm where the word bird should have been in a reference to an example) that suggests they used too old a version of the file — possibly the page proof file rather than the one from which the book was produced. Sigh.
