Long-trusted as the most practical and comprehensive Spanish grammar book available, A New Reference Grammar of Modern Spanish provides a comprehensive, cohesive, and clear guide to the forms and structures of Spanish as it is written and spoken today, both in Spain and in Latin America. The eagerly awaited fifth edition incorporates the latest research findings of the Royal Spanish Academy's official grammar book, the Nueva gramatica de la lengua espanola--the definitive guide to Spanish grammar. Packed with a wealth of fresh material, this marvellous resource includes new vocabulary--such as topical and technological terms--bringing the book completely up-to-date; more Latin-American Spanish to ensure extensive world-wide coverage; additional tables to consolidate information and allow for easier learning; notes and footnotes incorporated into the text where possible to make the book easier to read; and a "Guide to the Book" enabling you to make the most of this new edition. Spanish is the most popular foreign language in the US and this new edition will be an invaluable reference work for all students, teachers, and travellers."

This is the book that took me from beginner to intermediate. Priceless. It does demand some facility with gramatical terms, but that isn't too surprising, is it? Read full review
