From the Back Cover:

"Durrell's third edition of Hammer gave teachers and students of German an excellent, comprehensive, up-to-date, and user-friendly account of German grammar. The completeness of the survey, with its sound and imaginative explanations and its incorporation of new spelling and punctuation reform, will make this edition an even more indispensable guide to the advanced German learner in English-speaking countries than its predecessor and an invaluable reference work for the general linguist."
--Professor Michael Clyne, University of Melbourne, Australia

Considered the preeminent English-language grammar reference for the German language, Hammer's German Grammar and Usage will aid your learning of the language as it is spoken today. Professor Martin Durrell avoids encumbering you with prescribed rules and instead bases his coverage on current usage, including regional variations and registers of the modern standard language.

Thoroughly revised and updated, the fourth edition includes new spelling and punctuation that reflect the German grammar reforms, updated examples, expanded tables summarizing basic points, and a glossary of the grammatical terms.

Its dual role as a grammar reference and manual of current usage makes this book an essential part of your language-learning library. If you are an intermediate or advanced level student, a teacher, or a reader of German in need of a refresher, you will find Hammer's German Grammar and Usage invaluable to your understanding of the language.

Also available from McGraw-Hill as a companion to this book, Practicing German Grammar: A Workbook, Second Edition.
