Czech: An Essential Grammar is a practical reference guide to the core structures and features of modern Czech. Presenting a fresh and accessible description of the language, this engaging grammar uses clear, jargon-free explanations and sets out the complexities of Czech in short, readable sections. This new revised edition has been thoroughly updated with examples of current usage, additional morphological explanations and an historical overview of Czech as to why two levels - written and spoken Czech - exist till this day.

Suitable for either independent study or for students in schools, colleges, universities and adult classes of all types, key features include:

    • focus on the morphology and syntax of the language

    • clear explanations of grammatical terms

    • full use of authentic examples

    • use of basic twenty-first-century English borrowings

    • detailed contents list and index for easy access to information.

    With an emphasis on the Czech that native speakers use today, Czech: An Essential Grammar will help students to read, speak and write the language with greater confidence.

    'Karen von Kunes expands on James Naughton's already outstanding Czech grammar. Her historical outline of the Czech language in the introductory chapter represents a valuable addition to Naughton's book, which von Kunes elevates to the next level in its content and catapults it to the present time. Her indispensable linguistic comments and examples further clarify the subject matter. This edition is suitable for any student of Czech, ranging from beginners to advanced. It may well be the best Czech grammar currently available to learners of Czech.'

    Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Ein Kopierschutz bzw.
