Description:

"Korean: A Comprehensive Grammar" is a complete reference guide to Korean

a detailed analysis of sentence structures and semantic features such as
aspect, tense, speech styles and negation.

Avoiding complex grammatical terminology, the Grammar provides practical
information regarding how these grammatical patterns are used in real-world
conversation. Through the provision of realistic and lively examples, the
book presents readers with Korean grammatical patterns in context.

An extensive index and numbered sections provide readers with easy access
to the information they require.

*detailed treatment of the common grammatical structures and parts of speech
*clear, jargon-free explanations
*extensive and wide-ranging use of examples

The depth and range of "Korean: A Comprehensive Grammar" makes it an
essential reference source for the learner and user of Korean irrespective
of level. For the beginner, the book offers clear explanations of essential
basic grammar points while for the more advanced learner it provides
detailed descriptions of less frequent grammatical patterns.
