A nice description of the language. This book is definitely a decent first step in learning -- and learning about -- the language. It doesn't go incredibly in-depth, but it's not supposed to. It fulfills its purpose as a general, non-specialist handbook quite well. Chafe also manages to make a dry topic, grammar, relatively engaging; he writes quite pleasantly.
