Commentary: A Grammar of the English Language ranks as one of Cobbett's greatest works. It was written in America in the form of letters to his third son, James Paul Cobbett (1803-81). First published in New York in 1818, "this Grammar has maintained its freshness, vigour, and utility" to the present day.
