Modern German Grammar: A Practical Guideis an innovative reference guide to German as it is spoken and written today.
* Part A provides a description of the structures of modern German. All grammatical rules are illustrated with examples of contemporary German, each of which is accompanied by an English translation.
* Part B focuses on functions. Language is closely related to everyday situations: voicing an opinion, apologizing, expressing regret and so on. All points are richly illustrated, grammatical features are cross-referenced to Part A, and information is provided on register and relevant cultural background.
A detailed contents list, a section on how to use the book and a comprehensive index make the grammar user-friendly and accessible.
Modern German Grammar: A Practical Guideis suitable for intermediate and advanced learners of German. It will prove invaluable to those with little experience of formal grammar, as no prior knowledge of grammatical terminology is assumed and a detailed glossary of terms is provided. The book will also be useful to teachers seeking back-up to functional syllabuses and designers of German courses.
