Product Description Long-trusted as the most practical and comprehensive Spanish grammar book available, A New Reference Grammar of Modern Spanish provides a comprehensive, cohesive, and clear guide to the forms and structures of Spanish as it is written and spoken today, both in Spain and in Latin America. The eagerly awaited fifth edition incorporates the latest research findings of the Royal Spanish Academy's official grammar book, the Nueva gramática de la lengua española--the definitive guide to Spanish grammar. Packed with a wealth of fresh material, this marvellous resource includes new vocabulary--such as topical and technological terms--bringing the book completely up-to-date; more Latin-American Spanish to ensure extensive world-wide coverage; additional tables to consolidate information and allow for easier learning; notes and footnotes incorporated into the text where possible to make the book easier to read; and a "Guide to the Book" enabling you to make the most of this new edition. Spanish is the most popular foreign language in the US and this new edition will be an invaluable reference work for all students, teachers, and travellers. Review 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 gramática de la lengua española, published by the Real Academia Española, making it compulsory reading for students at all levels, academics, translators and professionals interested in mastering the intricacies of the Spanish language. - Javier Muñoz-Basols, University of Oxford, UKThe 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, UKA 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. - Begoña Sangrador-Vegas, School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures, National University of Ireland, Galway About the Author John Butt is Emeritus Professor of Modern Hispanic Studies, King's College, London. Carmen Benjamin is a native speaker of Spanish and a former lecturer in Spanish at King's College, London.
