Editorial Reviews

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