A New Reference Grammar of Modern Spanish Press Reviews

The fifth edition reaffirms A New Reference Grammar of Modern Spanish as the most practical and comprehensive Spanish grammar book on the market. By illustrating grammar through references to English and other languages, the authors have created a unique resource, giving the English-speaking reader access to a wealth of knowledge about the Spanish language, explained in a clear, cohesive and effective way. This new edition is the first to incorporate the findings of the latest Nueva gramatica de la lengua espanola, published by the Real Academia Espanola, making it compulsory reading for students at all levels, academics, translators and professionals interested in mastering the intricacies of the Spanish language. - Javier Munoz-Basols, University of Oxford, UK The 5th edition of Butt and Benjamin's New Reference Grammar of Modern Spanish manages to improve an already outstanding text. It should be standard issue for all serious students of Spanish. - Ian MacKenzie, Professor of Spanish Linguistics, School of Modern Languages, Newcastle University, UK A New Reference is a title we consider compulsory as a reference book for our students in the final year of their BA and BComm International programmes, and also at MA level. I also use it as a reference and I have always found it very useful. This new edition will be even more useful as it includes the new spelling and accent rules and a glossary of computing vocabulary. It is definitely the only grammar book in the market for final year graduate and postgraduate students. - Begona Sangrador-Vegas, School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures, National University of Ireland, Galway
