Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'With her unrivalled knowledge of the Persian language, Professor Lambton has produced a work that will long remain the standard textbook. As was to be expected, the treatment of pronunciation and the spoken language is particularly excellent ... an extremely useful work for which teacher and student will be equally grateful.' Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society

'The need for a new graded grammar of modern Persian has long been felt. Hitherto we have been fobbed off with exiguous and sketchy products, sometimes not even accurate. Professor Lambton's new Persian Grammar therefore answers a real need; and it is profoundly gratifying that the void has been filled by one whose knowledge of modern Persian, both written and spoken, is unique ... This grammar is comprehensive, and contains all that is necessary for the student to become thoroughly familiar with the language. We now have a Persian grammar which is accurate, complete and scholarly, and which at the same time contains sufficient reading matter to enable the student to handle the language for himself. Teachers of Persian will be particularly grateful for this book.' Oxford Magazine

'It is a pleasure to recommend this grammar to students of Persian, for I believe it is the best we have in English. One can admire the authoress for undertaking such a difficult task, and she has accomplished it with distinction. Although it is primarily for the contemporary Persian language, the book also serves as an excellent introduction to the classical language.' Harvard Journal of Asiatic Studies
