Chinese: A Comprehensive Grammar is a complete reference guide to Chinese grammar which presents a fresh and accessible description of the language, concentrating on the real patterns of use in modern Chinese.

The volume is organized to promote a thorough understanding of Chinese grammar. It offers a stimulating analysis of the complexities of the language and provides full and clear explanations. Throughout, the emphasis is on Chinese as used by present-day native speakers. An extensive index and numbered paragraphs provide readers with easy access to the information they require.

The new edition features a revised and expanded chapter on prosody (Prosody and Syntax), as well as four completely new chapters:

* Morphology and Syntax (I) looks at Chinese word formation

* Morphology and Syntax (II) explores the interaction between words, expressions and sentences

* Intralingual Transpositions reviews the possible conversions between sentential constructions

* Interlingual Conversions examines the differences between Chinese and English.

The Grammar is an essential reference source for the adult learner and user of Chinese. It is ideal for independent study and for use in schools, colleges, universities and adult classes, up to an advanced level.
