750 German Verbs and Their Uses gives you the backbone of language study — correct verb usage — by showing verb conjugations in their contexts. To understand the value of such an approach, consider the English verb "to hold," the meaning of which changes dramatically when used in such expressions as "hold on," hold up," "hold off," and "hold down"; in German, as students of the language have perennially learned to their frustration, the changes are far broader and apply to many more verbs. Now you won’t have to guess how a verb is used in a sentence: 750 German Verbs and Their Uses gives you all the correct variations and grammatical interrelationships. Correct usages are illustrated in common phrases and idiomatic expressions. Unusual or troublesome expressions are emphasized throughout. And special attention is given to reflexive verbs (often difficult for English speakers) to make their usage clear. Perfect for students and travelers, ideal as a text, a grammar book and a reference, 750 German Verbs and Their Uses will help you not only to conjugate verbs, but also to use them correctly and comprehensively. Also available in the Series: 750 French Verbs and Their Uses and 750 Spanish Verbs and Their Uses
