A Student Grammar of German is an invaluable reference guide for
undergraduates and other intermediate and advanced students. Written with the
needs of the learner very much in mind, it sets out the grammar of the
language in as clear and jargon-free way as possible. Each chapter starts with
an overview of the main grammatical terminology and concepts; these terms are
also cross-referenced in the glossary at the end of the book. To provide a
visual guide through each chapter, the main points in each section are
highlighted, and tables summarise important patterns. 'Tip' boxes, which help
the student to master particular points, are scattered through the text. Every
point has numerous illustrative examples, each with its translation, carefully
chosen from a wide range of printed and electronic media – books, newspapers,
magazines, film, and chat-rooms – to reflect contemporary usage across a range
of registers.
