Grammar is in the news again, involving new generations of children, teachers, and parents. People continue to argue about what’s right and wrong, and try to get to grips with the complexities. But why is grammar thought to be so difficult? How do children learn it so easily? Is there a way of making its study relevant and exciting? David Crystal explains all, with reference to his new book, Making Sense: the Glamorous Story of English Grammar. (And the answer to the last question is: yes.)
