Description

When this volume was published, Greenwood (1683?–1737) was second master at St. Paul’s School, London. Although Isaac Watts said that Greenwood had shown “deep knowledge,” there were vituperative critics as well. Charles Gildon charged Greenwood with making the task of learning grammar “more difficult.” And Andrea Guarna called it “the worst Grammar of the English Tongue that I ever saw.”
