From the introduction, "Nguyen Dang Liem, in his "Contrastive Analysis of English and Vietnamese," Vol. 1 (Canberra, 1966), gives a very useful table (page 47) of 87 English clause types. This is a review and commentary on that chart, with two proposals: 1) that all of the types be derived from one sentence -- "They gave him the presidency" -- rather than from several, as in Liem's original formulation; and 2) that the relationships between the major types be described by means of a two-branched tree."
