This book starts with a fully detailed pronunciation guide in chapter one. Each chapter thereafter is devoted to a particular part of speech; nouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, and so on, are given a complete treatment. There is also a chapter covering word order and clause structure. Of special interest to me is the chapter on prepositions. Danish is well known for its context sensitive prepositions. For example, 'for' in English can be 'efter', 'for', 'i', 'på', or 'til' in Danish, depending upon the meaning of the sentence. This chapter goes a long way in clarifying Danish prepositions. Many examples of grammar usage are given in each chapter, so even a beginner gets a leg up on the Danish language. Finally, because each part of speech has its own chapter, this book is great as a ready reference for both translating into and out of Danish, without wading through lengthy tutorial-style text books. If you want a quick to the point book on Danish grammar, this is the best I've seen to date.
