Makes lucid connections, when relevant, with current linguistic theory
Integrates language change and variation into the study of grammar
Examines historical sources of socially evaluative perceptions of grammar, as ‘good’ or ‘bad’, and notions of language authority
Provides syntactic explanations for many modern punctuation rules
