A New Reference Grammar of Modern Spanish
Widely recognised as a standard English-language reference grammar of Spanish. It provides teachers and students of Spanish with a comprehensive, accessible and jargon free guide to the forms and structures of the Spanish currently used in Spain and Latin America.
'The Butt and Benjamin New Reference Grammar of Modern Spanish is an essential reference tool for all interested in the Spanish language. The most extensive and accurate single-volume comprehensive source of information on contemporary Spanish language currently in existence in the English language, it replaces and surpasses the Ramsey-Spaulding Textbook of Modern Spanish.' George DeMello, Professor of Hispanic Linguistics, University of Iowa 'The most important event to occur in the descriptive linguistics of Spanish for many years' The Times Higher Education Supplement
