* 50 clues - GRAMMAR *





Libreria AVALON 2000


This book has not been written to compete either with school-textbooks, neither with SPANISH GRAMMAR books of 500 or 800 pages, aimed at University students and teachers.

This is a work directed to students and/or teachers of Primary and Secondary schools who wish to have compiled in 1 volume the numerous RULES and EXCEPTIONS - concerning Morphology and Syntax - which are "scattered" along the more than eighty lessons that may include studies of Primary and Secondary courses.

Due to the book format and number of pages this GRAMMAR provides EASY handling.

The structure and summary tables will be EASY to understand and memorize.

Because of its 40 pages about "Special Difficulties", and its 33 models of IRREGULAR verbs, you had wished to have been able to consult it long ago.

Its "INDEX" General “50 CLUES” and Alphabetical will make searching EASY.

The INDEX entitled “50 STEPS” is for structuring the teaching in 50 progressive steps from minor to greater difficulty.

The information given in the ANNEX about SPAIN will be also very useful for you all.

“The WAY”  we have to employ to JOIN words to form a sentence is called SYNTAX.

A “sentence” is the oral or written expression of our thoughts or feelings.

A grammatical “sentence” is composed of
SUBJECT / VERB / OBJECT:- direct – indirect – circumstantial.

In Spanish the construction of sentences is very flexible. Spanish Grammar allows many combinations but not anyone. First of all, due to the fact that verbs in Spanish have proper endings - related to each of the persons (first, second or third & singular or plural) executing the action - we do not need to write or say the SUBJECT.

Secondly, we can write or mention the subject AFTER the verb, for example:-

1)   INTERROGATIVE sentences:-   ¿ Quieres venir conmigo al Circo del Sol?

2) In LITERATURE when using verbs  as “decir - preguntar - responder – exclamar”.

Estoy cansado – dijo Tomás.   -   ¡Siempre la misma canción! – exclamó su madre.

¿Necesitas algo? – preguntó María. - Sí, por favor, 1 kilo de gambas – respondió Inés.

3)   Sentences expressing  a WISH – DESIRE – CONDITION - SUPPOSITION:-

¡Viva la Real Sociedad!   -  ¡Que os vaya bien todo!   -   Si así lo quiere ella.

4)   In  IMPERATIVE sentences when we want to emphasize the subject:- ¡Oye !

5)   If the sentence begins with the adverbs  CUÁNDO – EN CUÁNTO – APENAS.

Cuándo compre ella la casa, iremos de vacaciones = When she buy the house, we ...
En cuánto termines de ducharte, iremos... = As soon you finish having a shower…
Apenas recibió él sus notas, empezó a gritar =  As soon as he received his marks ...

6)   AFTER  words as “CUALQUIERA que” and “QUIENQUIERA que”:-

Cualquiera que sea la situación...   =    Whatever the situation may be ....
Quienquiera que sea él                =    Whoever he may be...

7)   AFTER  expression such as:- “por muy … que” / “por mucho … que”.

Por muy tarde que llegues tú, estaré esperándote = No matter how late you arrive ...

Por mucho que insistas , yo tengo otra opinión = No matter how much you insist ...
