Descripción

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 part of their studies.

The Grammar is accompanied by a third edition of Modern German Grammar Workbook (ISBN 978-0-415-56725-1) which features exercises and activities directly linked to the Grammar .

Ruth Whittle is Lecturer, John Klapper is Professor of Foreign Language Pedagogy, Katharina Gloeckel is the Austrian Lektorin and Bill Dodd is Professor of Modern German Studies - all at the University of Birmingham. Christine Eckhard-Black is Tutor and Advisor in German at the Oxford University Language Centre.
