The present book aims at giving a systematic exposition of Russian morphology, pronunciation and spelling for foreign students studying Russian without a teacher and for teachers of Russian. In this book, syntax is touched upon only briefly and in connection with morphology, when the uses of a morphological form are explained. Particular attention has been paid to the following aspects of Russian grammar which, in the opinion of the author, may present greater difficulty to beginners: the gender of the noun and the agreement in gender of a word with its head-noun, the meanings and uses of the cases with and without prepositions, the aspects of the verb and their use, the classification of verbs into productive-type and nonproductive-type verbs, and word-building. A short chapter at the beginning of the book outlines the main peculiarities of Russian pronunciation and spelling.
