A Comprehensive Spanish Grammar (Reference Grammars)by Jacques De Bruyne
Synopses & Reviews
This is a much-needed, definitive grammar for all students of Spanish. Balancing a respect for established tradition with an awareness of current usage, A Comprehensive Spanish Grammar is both authoritative and stimulating in its approach.
The book covers topics from basic pronunciation and the use of the noun, to particular problem areas, such as difficulties with verbs and word order. Grammar points are explained and amplified using examples from literary sources and the contemporary press. Throughout the book, attention is paid to regional diversity within the language, and in, particular, to Latin-American variations. A Comprehensive Sapnish Grammar would be welcomed by all students seeking coverage of the full range of modern-day Spanish.
Includes bibliographical references (p. -668) and indexes
