"The sixth edition of A New Reference Grammar of Modern Spanish equips the multilingual 21st-century learner with the essential tools to master the Spanish language. This new edition amplifies its contrastive approach by incorporating new references to other languages (French, Italian, Portuguese, German...) as well as a wealth of new language samples from the Spanish-speaking world. It also incorporates important references to areas of special difficulty for the anglophone speaker, providing a clear, accessible and comprehensive account of Spanish grammar to the independent learner and maintaining its role as an indispensable companion to language professionals and students of Spanish at all levels." - Javier Munoz-Basols, University of Oxford, UK
