An Introduction to English Grammar, Nelson G., Greenbaum S., 2016.

    An Introduction to English Grammar provides a comprehensive overview of all aspects of English grammar. The first part of the book (‘The Grammar’) provides a step-by-step introduction to the key topics in English grammar. The second part (‘The Applications’) shows how a grasp of these topics can be helpful in resolving usage problems, in developing a clear writing style and mastering punctuation and spelling. A whole chapter, ‘English in Use’, is devoted to illustrating the grammatical features of a wide range of modern text types, including emails, Facebook pages and ‘tweets’. It also looks at the special grammatical features of English in everyday conversation.

Word classes and word uses.
In Table 2.1 some words are listed in more than one class. For instance, play is both a noun and a verb; that is a pronoun, a determiner and a conjunction. Many more examples could be given of multiple membership of word classes. We can identify the class of some words by their form, as we see in later sections of this chapter. Very often though, we can tell the class of a word only from its use in a context. Reply is a noun in:
[1] I expect a reply before the end of the month.
It is a verb in:
[2] You should reply before the end of the month.

It is particularly easy to convert nouns to verbs and to convert verbs to nouns.
Reply in [1] and [2] represents two different words that share the same form. They are two different words, although they are related in meaning; they are entered as separate words in dictionaries (‘lexicons’).
