This book, for foreign students, is a guide to the composition of idiomatic English. Idiom is as much a matter of correct word order as of wide vocabulary or knowledge of syntax: and in this book Mr Hornby describes and tabulates the chief English sentence and phrase patterns, and sets down the numerous idiomatic ways of expressing time - relations and other common concepts.
