"When Laurence Thompson's original Vietnamese Grammar first appeared in 1965, it went almost instantly to the top of the list of required reading for serious students of the Vietnamese language. It has stayed there ever since but, in recent years, the title has become almost impossible to find, either in bookstores or in libraries, where original copies have often grown woefully ragged and marked up or are now simply missing. In the meanwhile, the author has become aware of a number of minor infelicities and typographical errors requiring correction. Thus, both demand and scholarship have dictated this re-edition." -From the Editor's Note

This is a very goods in contents.
It not only gives details of vietnamese accent ranging from the North to the south.
As a vietnamese I really admire Laurance C. Thompson for his valueable
contributions to make Vietnamese language well known over the world.
This book also a good reference for my English study and also help me to discover some interesting things about vietnamese language and cultures somewhere conveyed.

Page xvi - ... Thailand,, and Cambodia, while the Chinese influence was dominant in Vietnam. More recently the influence of European languages has not been negligible. Of these, Portuguese was perhaps the earliest, but Dutch, English, and French have also contributed their share. Moreover, at a deeper level we see that long contact among members of the various indigenous linguistic families has given rise to certain broad similarities characteristic of a linguistic area.
