    Modern Mandarin Chinese Grammar provides an innovative reference guide to Mandarin Chinese, combining traditional and function-based grammar in a single volume.

    The Grammar is divided into two parts. Part A covers traditional grammatical categories such as phrase order, nouns, verbs and specifiers. Part B is carefully organized around language functions and notions such as:

    Communication strategies
    Making comparisons
    Giving and seeking information
    Expressing apologies, regrets and sympathies
    The two parts of the Grammar are closely linked by extensive cross-references, providing a grammatical and functional perspective on many patterns. All grammar points and functions are richly illustrated with examples, with a strong focus on contemporary usage.

    Main features of the grammar include:

    Examples given in simplified characters, traditional characters and romanization (pinyin)
    Clear explanations and accessible descriptions
    Particular attention to areas of particular difficulty for learners of Mandarin Chinese
    Implementing feedback from users of the first edition of the Grammar, this second edition has been revised throughout to offer expanded explanations, examples, cross-referencing, and indexing and brand new chapters on aspect, resultative verbs, directional verbs and "ba" sentences.

    This is the ideal reference grammar for learners of Mandarin Chinese at all levels, from elementary to advanced. No prior knowledge of grammatical terminology is assumed and a glossary of grammatical terms is provided. This Grammar bundle includes the Modern Mandarin Chinese Grammar Workbook which features related exercises and activities.
