Norwegian: A Comprehensive Grammar is a complete reference guide to modern Norwegian (the Bokmal standard). The Grammar is an essential source for the serious student of Norwegian, and for students of comparative linguistics. It is ideal for use in colleges, universities and adult classes of all types.

The volume is organised to promote a thorough understanding of Norwegian grammar. It presents the complexities of Norwegian in a concise and readable form. Explanations are full, clear and free of jargon. Throughout, the emphasis is on Norwegian as used by present-day native speakers.

An extensive index, numbered paragraphs, cross-references and summary charts provide readers with easy access to the information they require.
