BASIC POLISH: A Grammar and Workbook
Dana Bialec, Clarendon College, Nottingham, 

Basic Polish presents concise explanations of grammar with
related exercises to build confidence in using the modern
language. Assuming no previous knowledge of Polish, its
step-by-step approach guarantees the reader a thorough
grounding in the basics of its grammar. Each of the forty
units introduces a particular grammar point and provides a
variety of exercises to enable the student to practice what
they have learnt. Features include notes on the Polish
alphabet, pronunciation and stress, a full answer key to
all exercises and a Polish-English glossary. Routledge Grammars
