* 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.

VERBS  with  UNCOMMON grammatical construction

There are verbs in Spanish which “real subject” – not the “grammatical subject” – the person doing the action is in reality the INDIRECT object of the verb!

This type of verbs always need to be conjugated with the relative PRONOUN in the form (not of subject but) of INDIRECT complement, and the verb in 3rd person SINGULAR if we like ONE thing or in PLURAL if several.

GUSTAR = to like

I LIKE fish                                           (a mi)            me       gusta     el     pescado
I LIKE flowers                                     (a mi)            me       gustan   las   flores

You LIKE riding a bike                         (a ti)            te         gusta montar en bici
You LIKE dogs                                     (a ti)            te         gustan los perros

He LIKES meat                                     (a él)           le         gusta la carne
He LIKES sweets                                  (a él)           le         gustan los caramelos

She LIKES fruit                                 (a ella)           le         gusta el pescado
She LIKES cakes                              (a ella)           le         gusta el pescado

The mare LIKES grass                     (a ella)           le         gusta la hierba
The dog LIKES bones                          (a él)           le         gustan los huesos

We LIKE going on holidays (a nosotros)   nos     gusta ir de vacaciones
We LIKE olives                                 (a nosotras)   nos     gustan las aceitunas

You both LIKE watching films        (a vosotros)   os        gusta ver películas
You both LIKE strawberries            (a vosotras)   os        gustan las fresas

They LIKE dancing                          (a ellos)          les       gusta bailar
They LIKE cherries                          (a ellas)          les       gustan las cerezas

Ø       Other verbs conjugated on this way are:-

Disgustar (to dislike) – Encantar (to love sth) – Parecer   (to seem) – Doler ( to hurt)

Ir / Venir bien (to suit) – Importar (to matter) – Faltar (to lack) –  Apetecer (to appeal)

Ø       Also, note the following grammatical constructions:-

Ella ha acabado sus deberes.                       She has FINISHED her homework.
Yo acabo de ver a tu madre.                         I have JUST seen your mother.
Ella ha vuelto del colegio.                             She has COME back from school.
Yo he vuelto a ver a tu madre.                      I have seen your mother AGAIN.
Yo he dejado de comer carne.                      I have STOP eating meat.
Yo he dejado mi libro a tu hermana. I have LENT your sister my book.
Ella me ha dejado su revista.                       She has BORROWED me a magazine.
