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 © A Basic Modern Russian Grammar, Eugenia Nekrasova,1997. © Graphic Design, eBook publisher, Dmitry Pobedimsky, 2002. ISBN 5-85550-119-1
