Editorial Reviews

"When Scottish scholar of the Russian language Wade(1930-2005) died, he was well advanced in plans but not actual workto update the grammar that had been highly successful in its 1992and 2000 editions. David Gillespie (Russian, U. of Bath) took upthe task, choosing not to try to guess what innovations Wade had inmind. Instead, he consolidated and added a few new sections,careful to preserve what he believes to be already the best Russiangrammar available. Beginning with an explanation of the Cyrillicalphabet and pronunciation, it works through all the parts ofspeech to word order." (Reference and Research Book News,February 2011)
