Description

A Comprehensive Russian Grammar is the definitive guide to Russian usage and the standard reference work for students and professionals alike. Now in its fourth edition, it has been updated throughout by Russian language expert David Gillespie. His revisions reflect the grammatical and lexical changes in the digital age, and the new market-oriented economy of capitalist Russia, as well as the introduction of new accessible usage examples from Russian websites, social media, and post-Soviet literature.

This revised edition solidifies the position of A Comprehensive Russian Grammar as the premier text for Russian language reference across the English-speaking world.
