More About the Author

Gareth King is the author of numerous books on language and languages for Routledge/Taylor & Francis and Oxford University Press, including a range of well-known and popular titles written for learners of Welsh.
He did his first degree during the Cold War, emerging from Cambridge University with the then customary degree in Russian, Czech and Old Church Slavonic, and sensibly went on some years later to do an MA in Old Irish and Scottish Gaelic at Aberystwyth, learning Welsh in the process.
December 2010 saw the publication of his extensive revision and expansion of George Campbell's well-known Concise Compendium of the World's Languages, followed exactly two years later by a similar updating of the original 2-volume edition.
He now divides his time between writing, acting as consultant for a major publisher, and pursuing a wide range of interests that includes fin-de-siècle Paris, curry and Finno-Ugrian languages.

Product Description


Gareth King, an experienced teacher of Welsh to adults, has in the short space of three years published a comprehensive reference grammar of spoken Welsh; a lively, up-to-date introductory language course; and now two further 'grammar-workbooks'. This impressive opus constitutes a solid, much-needed and most welcome contribution to the descriptive grammar literature on modern colloquial Welsh and a considerable achievement....For more than one reason, both the beginner and the professional linguist alike who approaches spoken Welsh with books such as these to hand is a far luckier student than were those of my own generation, and Gareth King is to be thanked....I am sure that for many people these books will have had the effect of putting modern spoken Welsh firmly on the map; let no one underestimate the importance of that.

First Sentence
In Basic Welsh (Unit 24) we saw how the stem of the verb is used when we need to add endings; the imperative (command form) ending -wch, for example, is added not to talu (verb-noun) to give taluwch, but to the stem tal- to give talwch! 'pay!' Read the first page

Format: Paperback
I am learning Welsh, because my children are at Welsh school, and I want to be able to help them in their
homework. I also want to be able to speak to my husband and his family in their first language. Welsh
language courses today consist of learning patterns; grammar is rarely explained. The trouble is that I
can't learn all the 'patterns' without understanding the grammar; the patterns look like a sea of sentences
with very little to distinguish between them. I need to know about the grammar.
I can't recommend this book highly enough - a lot of the language has suddenly become clear to me. Each of
the 40 chapters in the book consists of 3 or 4 pages of explanation, followed by 3 or so excercises of
perhaps 20 or 30 questions. What really impresses me about this book is that the questions probe all
aspects of the grammar point, until you really understand it; its very skillfully done. Doing the excercises also took me further in my understanding of the grammar point than the explanation in the chapter, carefully and slowly by example.
If you are learning Welsh and have progressed at college on from the basic courses, buy this book - its worth every penny!
