4.0 out of 5 stars A must have for any linguist 10 Aug 2012
By Laura
Verified Purchase
Very thorough and complete. I bought it to have it as a reference for grammar while translating, but I use it now to study certain aspects that I need to finally fully understand. It is not really useful as a quick reference. For this purpose I recommend "Diccionario panhispánico de dudas" (RAE). Beware, these two volumes are sturdy and heavy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Goldmine of Spanish syntax and morphology 3 Dec 2012
By Alan U. Kennington - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This 4000-page "Nueva gramática de la lengua española" is a real goldmine of knowledge. It is surely the best systematic grammar book I have seen for any language. There are 11 chapters on morphology and 37 chapters on syntax. The style of writing is in itself educational to read. Each chapter is organised into sections which are organised into paragraphs which are semi-self-contained mini-essays on detailed aspects of the language. Each sentence in these paragraphs seems to be written with a view to being a model of good grammar and expression, and each paragraph is well-structured. It's a delight to read.

I bought this book and the much smaller (305 pages) Nueva gramática básica de la lengua española (which is condensed from the full grammar) at the same time. At first, the size of the full grammar book seemed so great that I thought it would gather dust until I was advanced enough to use it. However, the first thing I looked up in the concise version (concerning conditional constructions) was inadequately covered in a 7-page chapter. So I took a deep breath and waded into the corresponding 104-page chapter in the 4000-page work. Result: Pure pleasure! This book systematically presents a very wide range of conditional sentence structures, with multiple variations, giving explanations for when and how to use each kind of construction, contrasting the subtle differences in meaning between similar sentence structures (which are distinguished by mode and tense in particular). Numerous useful examples are given for most points. Judicious use of underlining draws the eye to the relevant parts of example sentences. Fonts and typefaces are used effectively to facilitate comprehension. Adequate and useful cross-references are given to other parts of the book.

I have several other Spanish grammar books, and they are all unsatisfying because they leave out so much detail that one cannot fill in the gaps. With concise grammar books, one has to try guessing phrases in a search engine to assist the discovery of correct grammar from online examples. The comprehensive RAE grammar book makes such desperate searches on the internet redundant.

One of the things I particularly like about this grammar book is the analytic order of presentation. By this I mean that the presentation starts with smaller units of sentences and builds up to multi-clause sentence structuring. Thus the first 11 syntax chapters (chapters 12-22) are about nouns and nounal phrases, adjectives and adjectival phrases, definite articles, indefinite articles, personal pronouns, demonstratives, possessives, quantifiers, numerals, and relative/interrogative/exclamatory connectives. This is all before verbs are discussed in 6 chapters (chapters 23-28). Then come 4 chapters on prepositions and prepositional phrases, adverbs and adverbial phrases, conjunctions, and interjections and interjection phrases. Then there are 16 chapters on all aspects of sentence construction. Some people prefer to start with whole sentences and then fill in the details. For this purpose one can start by reading the later chapters and come back to the details later. But in my opinion, the systematic synthesis of grammar from low-level word groups up to multi-clause sentences is the best approach for a truly comprehensive grammar book such as this is. I wish I had such grammar books for other languages!

I have only briefly mentioned the initial 11 chapters on morphology because most medium-size grammar books do a fairly satisfactory job in this department. However, this grammar book gives the same thorough, comprehensive treatment to morphology that it does to syntax, which goes far beyond what the concise grammar books give. By contrast with the syntax sections, the morphology sections have a large amount of information about variations between countries. Just as one example, paragraph 6.12f discusses national and regional variants of nouns using the suffix "-ería", such as the word "pupusería" (a certain kind of tortilla), in 10 countries. This country-by-country treatment is seen repeatedly in this chapter about noun suffixes. Chapter 7 has the same level of detail about adjective and adverb suffixes. Chapter 8 covers similar variations of verbs.

All in all, this is a real feast of grammar. If a grammar book has a little "too much information", you can be selective and dip in where you wish. But a grammar book with too little information is useless if the detail which you want is not there.

This grammar book is also pure pleasure to own. It's nicely printed and bound. It is structured admirably. And the prose is clear and elegant. It is more expensive than the average grammar book, but I expect to derive a lifetime of satisfaction from these two weighty volumes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Modern Linguistics enters Academic Grammar in Spanish 5 Aug 2010
By peor - Published on Amazon.com
For the first time, I can read an Academic Spanish Grammar that is not merely prescrptive, as it had been so far, but that admits, and seems to adjust well to, the principles of modern grammar to which I grew accustomed while studying Linguistics at college level, and which other languages had already adopted. This seems to be the beginning of a new era for the Spanish Academies, who have been rather old-fashioned in their handling of the language, and therefore, had been left behind by the Spanish-speaking populations in Europe, but especially in the Western Henisphere.

Este libro debería superar a la Sagrada Biblia en ventas. El castellano es por más el mejor idioma de la humanidad, y con estos dos volúmenes se puede dominar con una excelencia digna de espanto y de impresión (favorable con los dos). Calidad, perfecta. Muy recomendado.

This represents a great effort from all the Spanish Academies around the world. It's without doubt a reference for anyone interested to learn in detail the structure and proper use of Spanish.
