About the Authors
  • 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.

    • Each chapter starts with an overview of the main grammar concepts, with examples in English and German
    • 'Tip' boxes scattered through the text contain brief summaries
    • Every grammar point is illustrated with carefully chosen examples from a wide range of sources
