First of all sorry for not asking a technical question.

Actually I need to know the best English grammar book in terms of completeness and depth of every topic.

Any help would be appreciated.

  • There are at least two different kinds of book you might be looking for: (a) a textbook for learning English (I know of many good ones, but no best ones, since everybody learns differently) or (b) a technical grammar of English (McCawley 1998 is the best one I know. It's not a simple rule book, but rather a textbook for a full-year college course in English syntax, roughly the same size as a calculus text, and requiring about the same level of attention and practice. That said, it has everything.) – John Lawler Sep 20 '14 at 20:48

    Please note that requests for references are specifically off-topic, and that asking for the "best" reference is often a matter of opinion, which would also make it off-topic. There is a list of good reference works on Meta. – choster Sep 20 '14 at 21:31
  • There is an interesting & short & well organized grammar book called <Grammar for English Language Teachers>, it's very good & easy to read. – Eric Wang Dec 18 '16 at 13:46
