Modern Spanish Grammar: A Practical Guide, 2nd Edition by Juan Kattan-Ibarra and Christopher Pountain
This new edition of the bestselling Modern Spanish Grammar: A Practical Guide is an innovative reference guide to Spanish, combining traditional and function-based grammar in a single volume.
The Grammar is divided into two parts. Part A covers traditional grammatical categories such as word order, nouns, verbs and adjectives. Part B is carefully organized around language functions and notions such as:
- Giving and seeking information
- Putting actions into context
- Expressing likes, dislikes and preferences
This is the ideal reference grammar for learners of Spanish at all levels, from elementary to advanced. No prior knowledge of grammatical terminology is assumed and a glossary of grammatical terms is provided.
