A Reference Grammar Of Modern Italian, Second Edition

Product Description

 A Reference Grammar Of Modern Italian, Second Edition by Martin Maiden, Cecilia Robustelli

This Italian reference grammar provides students, teachers and others interested in the Italian language with a comprehensive, accessible and jargon-free guide to the forms and stucture of Italian.

Whatever their level of knowledge of the language, learners of Italian will find this book indispensable: it gives clear and detailed explanations of everything from the most elementary facts such as the relation between spelling and pronunciation, or the forms of the article, to more advanced points such as the various nuances of the subjunctive. Formal or archaic discourse is distinguished from informal, everyday usage, and regionalisms are also indicated where appropriate.

The authors have taken care to make it an easy and illuminating reference tool: extensive cross-referencing enables readers to quickly find the information they require, and also stimulates them to discover new, related facts.

  • All examples are translated and the book includes thorough cross-referencing
  • More student-friendly page layout and features: more tables instead of text
