Summary/Abstract: The textbook is intended for people who already familiarised themselves (at least with the rudiments) of the Polish grammatical system, for people to whom this system is no longer alien and who went through the process of overcoming the difficulties of Polish morphology. The author focuses on the practical application of grammar. The book consists of four parts each of which presents the particular levels of the language: the sound, inflectional, word-formative and syntactical systems. Each part is accompanied by a reference index of the equivalents of basic Polish grammatical terms in four languages: English, French, German and Russian. The index is arranged according to subjects. Grammatical information should be treated as a synthetic presentation of a repository of the grammatical instruments and mechanisms of the Polish language. By indicating the grammatical regularities and the mechanisms of the Polish language the author directs the reader’s attention also to more subtle phenomena, the niceties of grammar, the awareness of which and the familiarity with which as well as the purposeful application in communicative practice render the language which is studied more and more familiar.The difficulty curve of the exercises is varied: apart from easy exercises there are also such exercises which demand considerable intellectual effort, so that the reader who engages them does not fall into the trap of repetitive rote-learning and that his or her approach to the tasks that he or she is set is creative, that the reader who solves grammatical problems of varying complexity does not perceive himself or herself as the object of study but a partner of this fascinating form of social interaction that is the process of acquiring a language. At the other side of the book – by the intermediation of the author and her suggestions as well as of the suggestions of an optional teacher, who is going to engage directly with the student – is the LANGUAGE itself and the cultural heritage of Polish people which is expressed in this language. Hence the selection of the literary texts (which constitute an exemplification of the particular grammatical phenomena), which were drawn from the Polish literary output. These excerpts manifest a linguistic, stylistic, content-based, emotional and (partially) chronological variety.
