Book: Modern Italian Grammar: A Practical Guide (Modern Grammars)
Modern Italian Grammar follows an entirely new approach to learning Italian. It
embraces a new way of looking at grammar not as an ultimate goal, but as the
tool with which we construct a dialogue or a piece of writing.
Modern Italian Grammar is specifically designed to be accessible to the
English reader not brought up in the Italian tradition of grammar and language
analysis. It is unique both in its combination of formal grammar reference section
and its guide to usage organized along functional lines, and because it has been
compiled by an English mother-tongue teacher of Italian and an Italian native
speaker, working closely together.
It is the ideal reference text to use with newer language courses, for both
beginner and advanced learner.
An innovative practical reference grammar, combining traditional and function-based grammar in a single volume, this is the ideal reference grammar for intermediate and advanced learners at advanced secondary level and above.
