Abstract:

"Cantonese: A Comprehensive Grammar" is a complete reference guide to
Cantonese as spoken by native speakers in Hong Kong. It presents a fresh
and accessible description of the language, concentrating on the real
patterns of use in current Cantonese. This makes it the ideal reference
source for all learners and users of Cantonese, irrespective of level, in
schools, colleges, universities and adult classes of all types. Moreover,
it will provide a lasting and reliable resource for all fluent speakers of
the language.

The book is organized to promote a thorough understanding of Cantonese
grammar. Arranged by both syntactic categories and language functions, the
Grammar provides an in-depth treatment of structures and pays special
attention to idiom and speech registers, including trendy language.

Explanations are full, clear and free of jargon. A glossary, extensive
index and generous use of cross-references provide readers with easy access
to the information they require.

Features include:

*comprehensive pronunciation section
*full use of examples from films, advertising and authentic conversations
*Cantonese-English parallels highlighted throughout the book
*all examples given in Cantonese characters as well as Yale romanization
*a Companion Website with supplementary multimedia material.
