Ron Maxim, Director,
Government Cargo Support Services, Maersk Sealand, Atlanta, GA, USA:

...Mrs.Nekrasova`s book is very creative...

Frederick Lyons, Resident Representative,
United Nations Development Programme in the Russian Federation

This book very definitely helped me improve my Russian fluency.
With good humour and strong didactic principles it leads through the
difficulties of the Russian Grammar.

Markku Lehto, Chief of Moscow Bureau
of the Finnish Broadcasting Company, Finland

The book is really very helpful. The explanations given in the
book are clear and inventive. The teaching materials have been very
well sorted.

To the Readers

This book is meant both for the learners and the teachers of Russian.

The name of the book speaks for itself: "A Basic Modern Russian Grammar".

The attention is focused on the facts of Modern Russian language which are
basic, of high frequency and in common use.

As most of the learners are not professional linguists the author tried to avoid
unnecessary linguistic terms.

The explanations, charts and presentation of grammar material enable the
learners of Russian understand some practical mechanisms of the language
in a certain logical order .

The teachers of Russian can use it in their practical work.

All the charts originally belong to the author.

The author expresses her deep gratitude to Mr D. Pobedimsky without whom
the book would not have succeeded and to Prof. T. Wade (UK) for his encour-
agement.

I wish you success,

Eugenia Nekrasova
