5.0 out of 5 stars Nueva Gramática de la Lengua Española, April 6, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Nueva gramatica de la Lengua Espanola. Manual (Spanish Edition) (Paperback)
Wow.. this is some manual. I speak this language fluently and linguistics being my field, I'm always trying to keep up with the grammar of Latin, Spanish, English, French and Italian so when I see any books on grammatical updates I am of course interested. The Nueva Gramática de la Lengua Española seemed like a nice book to keep in touch with the grammar of this beautiful language particularly since it includes the South and Central American usage as well. The price also was attractive so without even checking the size of it, I ordered this wonderful manual to eventually find out that it has over 900 pages.. Am I going to read all this! (was my initial thought) as I held the rather "physically" heavy book, pesado sí, pero aburrido no (heavy but not boring; pesado: heavy, is used all the time in Spanish to describe a boring person or thing.
Since it is a manual and not a thriller, some might disagree ;), one can select any chapter and learn, refresh, confirm, enjoy that particular part of grammar. It is a wonderful manual to consult and for further learning of the Spanish language and its sometimes different usage throughout the Spanish speaking world. However this book is for the proficient speaker with a passion for grammar, it is not a learner's manual. It is very helpful for teachers of the language, writers, linguists. If you are in that category, this book is great; the explanations and examples are many and very efficiently set out and I recommend it. If you have doubts as to your level of the language, don't buy this book.

Hola, este manual parece ser muy útil pues hasta las cosas más sencillas se nos olvidan, como por ejemplo el uso correcto de las minúsculas y mayúsculas en los títulos de libros. El título es: Nueva gramática de la lengua española.
Saludos

Hello, Sylvia. May I ask if there is any learner's manual you like and would suggest for a 7th/8th grade Spanish-native speaker student?
