Cantonese: A Comprehensive Grammar
Matthews and Yip present a fresh and accessible description of the contemporary language. The book is organised by both syntactic categories and language functions, providing comprehensive treatment of grammatical structures and paying special attention to idiom and speech registers. Grammatical points are illustrated by authentic examples from films, advertising and conversation in Hong Kong.
An extensive index, numbered paragraphs and generous use of cross references provide readers with easy access to the information they require. This grammar will be the standard reference for years to come.
