Book Information


Title: A Reference Grammar of Spanish
Written By: R. E. Batchelor
Miguel Ángel San José

A Reference Grammar of Spanish is a comprehensive handbook on the structure
of the Spanish language. Keeping technical terminology to a minimum, it
provides a detailed yet clear point of reference on all the intricacies of
Spanish grammar, covering word order, parts of speech, verb use, syntax,
gender, number, alphabet, and pronunciation. Accompanied by a wealth of
carefully chosen examples, it looks at Spanish in Iberia, the USA, Mexico,
and Argentina, and demonstrates the differences between these varieties. It
is designed specifically with English-speaking learners in mind, and
contains useful tools such as a glossary of terms, an index, and a detailed
examination of different registers of the language. Clearly structured and
systematically organised, this volume is set to become the standard guide
to the grammar of contemporary Spanish, and will be an invaluable resource
for teachers and students, as well as a practical supplement to textbooks
and classroom study.
