* 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.

3)  SUPERLATIVOS de “superioridad”:-   

Your sister is the MOST beautiful   =   Tu hermana es LA  MÁS bella.

-    SUPERLATIVOS de “inferioridad”:-     

My nephew is the LEAST handsome   =   Mi sobrino es EL  MENOS guapo.

þ  Please, notice that in superlative expressions – in Spanish – we will use the preposition    DE   instead of the English preposition “in”.

She is the clevest  woman IN town = Ella es la mujer MÁS lista DE la ciudad.

4)  As in English, some adjectives may have IRREGULAR forms, as it happens with adjectives such as :-  good – bad – big. 


þ  Do not have special “femenine” form, comparatives and superlatives ending in  OR .

ABSOLUTE  superlative

5)   As in English, the absolute superlative is formed by placing the adverb  VERY  =  MUY  before the adjective.

Él es una persona MUY importante   = He is a VERY important person.

6)   But in Spanish, we can also form the “absolute adjective” adding to the word the endings:- She is a VERY important person =  Ella es una persona IMPORTANTÍSIMA.

Masculine singular:-        ÍSIMO                      Femenine singular:-         ÍSIMA
“                 plural:-           ÍSIMOS                    “                plural:-            ÍSIMAS


a)   If the adjective ends in a VOWEL will lose it:-           grande  -   grandísimo.
b)   If it would end in  IO  will lose it:-                                limpio    -   limpísimo.
c)   Ending in  CO  will become  QUÍSIMO:-                   blanco   -   blanquísimo.
d)   Ending in  GO  will become  GUÍSIMO:-                    largo     -   larguísimo.
e)   Ending in GUO will become QUÍSIMO:-                    antiguo  -  antiquísimo
f)    Ending in  BLE  will become BILÍSIMO:-                   amable  -   amabilísimo
g)   The diphthong  UE will change to  O:-                       fuerte    -   fortísimo.
h)   The diphthong   IE  will change to  E:-                       valiente -   valentísimo.
