This book is expressly designed as an all-around guide for those who already know German but want to improve their command of the language. Unique in its scope, German Today is a reference work that is also readable and practical, discussing matters such as declension, conjugation, and pronunciation according to current usage, and taking into account the many regional differences. Lockwood devotes one section to points of vocabulary of special interest to the English-speaking reader, while the largest section, on syntax, illustrates the salient features in the construction of sentences, with particular attention paid to those aspects in which German differs from English. Placing particular stress on present day practice, German Today helps the student see German as a native speaker sees it.
