A New Reference Grammar of Modern Spanish is widely recognized as the standard English-language reference grammar of Spanish. It provides teachers and students of Spanish with a comprehensive, accessible and jargon-free guide to the forms and structures of the Spanish currently used in Spain and Latin America. This new edition has been carefully revised and updated, and its explanations have been checked against the findings of the Royal Spanish Academy's Gramatica descriptiva de la lengua espanola and other new works in the field. Many new Peninsular and Latin American examples have been included, the English text has been thoroughly revised and in many places expanded or clarified. A glossary of grammatical terms has also been included. As a result this new version should now be invaluable to an even wider readership ranging from intermediate to advanced students of Spanish.

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
