Learn Chinese in China

Thanks for grammar book suggestions


Recommended Posts

I"ve searched in vain through many, many pages of fora to try to find the topic and person who suggested A Practical Chinese Grammar (by Hung-nin Samuel Cheung et al) and Chinese: A Comprehensive Grammar (by Yip Po-Ching and Don Rimmington). Cant find the topic, but, whoever you are, thank you, thank you. I have a bunch of grammars, mainly because none of them ever answered more than one out of, say, three of my questions on any given day. But I've stopped searching. I don't think I'd be satisfied with just one of these two, but together, they provide this intermediate student with answers--as long as I know what questions to ask. And both of them have *good* dictionaries, miracle of miracles.

You're right. This is a special place for students of Chinese language and culture. I hope it's as helpful to all those students of English and western culture too.

Also, I just reread my first post in this topic. I meant to say good indices, not good dictionaries. Indices are rare in grammar books.

Thanks again,
