When asked their favorite field of study, most people will not answer grammar, but David Crystal's enthusiasm and knowledge of the subject may convince naysayers to reconsider. Crystal's pleasant British accent and precise, well-paced diction guide listeners through an exploration of the development of grammar in children, the teaching of grammar using the prescriptive approach and its conflicts with the descriptive approach, comparisons of English grammar with the grammars of other languages, and changes and evolution in grammar usage from the time of the ancient Greeks to our current digital landscape. Crystal's warm tone, genuine interest in the subject, and entertaining delivery add greater dimension to a subject many wrote off in school.
