Terence Wade


It was with a sense of great anticipation and duty that I undertook the revision of the third edition of Terence Wade’s A Comprehensive Russian Grammar in
2009, and in my Preface to that edition (published 2011) I indicated that my primary purpose was to ‘enhance the status and significance of the grammar
throughout the scholarly world’. It was both a pleasure and an honour to do so, and it remains my conviction that Professor Wade’s work remains the best and
most accessible English-language grammar of Russian in existence.
I am guided by similar instincts in my revisions to A Russian Grammar Workbook, whose first edition was published in 1996. Because the sets of exercises are so closely keyed to the relevant section in the Grammar I have decided not to undertake any major surgery on the Workbook, or attempt structural revisions, but rather to revise and/or update individual exercises where I considered this necessary. I have added some new material in the
form of multiple choice questions and translation exercises.
There is also a grammar quiz that brings the workbook to a close. I would like to thank the following who have provided native-language assistance in the course of 2011: Ekaterina Maiseeva and Natasha Zhuravkina of the University of Bath, Natasha Shaftel’skaia of the State University of Tomsk, and Lidiia Polubichenko, Tat’iana Beliaeva and Oksana Nikishova of Moscow State University. Having taught Russian language at all levels, from ab initio to postgraduate interpreting, for over 25 years, it is my firm belief that Professor Wade’s work remains the most comprehensive – and the most testing – for students of the language, be they on university language courses or self-taught.
