   Let us introduce a concise glossary of grammar terminology as well as expressions and words that are commonly used to describe the grammar. We should note that the author could have easily made the publication much bigger and intimidating. However, this would definitely take the author into dictionary making not glossary making, as it was intended; and, with the intention to avoid this, the author of the book has had to choose which of the terms are considered key ones and important enough to include in the glossary and, in turn, which terms could be excluded. Apart from the glossary itself, the book includes a list of useful books relating to grammar supplemented with the suggestions for further research. The book was prepared by one of the most distinguishing expert grammarians in the world and provides basic and simple info on grammatical terminology. All definitions provided by the author are very concise and clear, making the book wonderful to use. The remarkable efforts made by the author, Geoffrey Leech, resulted in this publication presenting a huge number of useful terms. The proper usage of such terminology can be a problem for the students and that is why there is a necessity for such sort of publication providing the accessible guidance with the focus made on the English language.
