This text is firmly based on current usage of German rather than prescription, covering all the main grammatical phenomena of German and embracing regional variations and registers of the modern standard language. The combination of reference grammer and manual of current usage has proved valuable for students and teachers of German at intermediate and advanced level. This new edition has been revised in accordance to the new spelling and punctuation reform and all examples have been updated. With special attention to student needs, the tables summarizing basic points have been expanded and the book's layout modified to make it even more accessible. A new glossary of garmmatical terms has been added and the three separate indexes have been combined into one.
