This reference grammar is written for speakers of English who are learning Swahili. Because many language learners are not familiar with the grammatical terminology, this book explains the basic terminology and concepts of English grammar that are necessary for understanding the grammar of Swahili. It assumes no formal knowledge of English grammar and is written in very simple language. This book is designed to be used as a supplement to other Swahili language textbooks, and provides more extensive explanations of the grammar lessons presented in textbooks. The manual is arranged by topic to help learners locate information easily. The book is organized in 55 chapters with a section for each part of speech: nouns, pronouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, conjunctions, and prepositions. There are also sections for sentences and miscellaneous. References appear in footnotes throughout the text. Contains a glossary, an index, and an answer key. (KFT)
