5.0 out of 5 stars 'Polish: An Essential Grammar' - look no further than this book!, 11 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Polish: An Essential Grammar (Routledge Essential Grammars) (Paperback)
This author certainly has a remarkable knowledge of the Polish language and presents its grammar clearly without confusing jargon, often in easy-to-use tables, with loads of examples of everyday Polish. As the book is for English speakers with maybe a hazy grasp of English grammar, the author describes the function of all parts of speech (e.g. verbs, adverbs, conjunctions) - great revision before you tackle Polish grammar. I found the new Chapter 4 on studying an inflected language quite inspiring - it lists common errors made by students and analyses a typical Polish text, showing you what to look for, like plurals and cases, so that the text makes sense. There are 9 appendices summarising the most critical elements of Polish grammar in table form, including all the tenses of `to be' and `to have' - saves you hunting for the right bit of the verb in the book. For 430 pages the book is excellent value for money - worth twice the price in my opinion. Simply can't be beaten!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Important Resource for Students of the Polish Language, 28 Sept. 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Polish: An Essential Grammar (Routledge Essential Grammars) (Paperback)
This year I completed Basic Polish: A Grammar and Workbook (Grammar Workbooks) and I am currently working through Intermediate Polish: A Grammar and Workbook (Grammar Workbooks), both written by Ms. Bielec. When I saw that she released this new grammar, I couldn't resist buying it.

I am finding it to be the perfect complement to her grammar workbooks. They, of course, cover much of the same material, but this book goes into much greater detail. The book is an excellent learning tool for the serious student and I highly recommend it.
