Description
 
This guide to contemporary Polish language and usage grew out of the first two editions of the author's long out-of-print Concise Grammar of Polish. This reference grammar is primarily intended for English-speaking learners of Polish. It is a practical grammar, designed to facilitate the learning of forms and to explain their uses in a way that will be accessible to the non-specialist. At the same time, this book aims to be a fairly complete and reliable technical guide to the rules, regularities, and principles which underpin Polish grammar, taking into account important exceptions and irregularities. No attempt is made to simplify or gloss over matters which are in actuality complex, as many matters of Polish grammar are. The aim is to present complex things as simply as possible, and not to make simple things seem more complex than they are in actuality. A special attempt has been made to describe facts relating to the social implementation of grammatical forms, a point of view which is often inadequately represented in grammars of Polish written by Poles, for whom such matters may seem obvious.

Oscar Swan's treatment of the complex phonology and morphology of Polish is thorough and of interest to linguists, but sufficiently non-technical and self-explanatory to be useful to advanced students of Polish and non-linguist Polonists as well. An especially welcome feature of the book is the extensive coverage of syntax and usage. The treatment of case and prepositions is sure to answer many questions for even the fluent non-native speaker of Polish.
