Abstract:

Modern German Grammar: A Practical Guide, Third Edition is an innovative
reference guide to German, combining traditional and function-based grammar
in a single volume.

The Grammar is divided into two parts. Part A covers grammatical categories
such as word order, nouns, verbs and adjectives. Part B is organised
according to language functions and notions such as:

•making introductions

•asking for something to be done

•delivering a speech

•possibility

•satisfaction.

The book addresses learners' practical needs and presents grammar in both a
traditional and a communicative setting. New to this edition, and building
on feedback from the previous edition:

•The rules of the latest (and so far final) spelling reform have been
implemented throughout.

•Examples of usage have been updated and consideration given to Swiss and
Austrian variants.

•The chapter on register has been expanded and now includes youth language
and frequently used Anglicisms in German.

•The Index now has even more key words; it has also been redesigned to
differentiate between German words, grammar terms, and functions, thus
making it more user-friendly.

The Grammar assumes no previous grammatical training and is intended for
all those who have a basic knowledge of German, from intermediate learners
in schools and adult education to undergraduates taking German as a major
or minor
