Summary

Modern Dutch Grammar: A Practical Guide is an innovative reference guide to Dutch, combining traditional and function-based grammar in a single volume. With a strong emphasis on contemporary usage, all grammar points and functions are richly illustrated with examples.

The Grammar is divided into two parts. Part I covers traditional grammatical categories such as nouns and verbs. Part II is carefully organized around language functions and contexts such as:

  • Giving and seeking information
  • Describing processes and results
  • Expressing attitudes, mental states and emotions
  • Registers and style
  • Formal and informal communication, e.g. youth talk

Main features of the Grammar include:

  • Clear, succinct and jargon-free explanations
  • Extensive cross-referencing between the different sections
  • Emphasis on areas of particular difficulty for learners of Dutch

This is the ideal reference grammar for learners of Dutch at all levels, from elementary to advanced; no prior knowledge of grammatical terminology is assumed and it provides indices of grammatical terms and functions. This Grammar is complemented by a companion website featuring related exercises and activities to reinforce learning.
