1. A Comparative useful Grammar of French, Spanish and Italian through O. W. Heatwole (1949) you can be capable of purchase it from third-party dealers on Amazon; at present a paperback version from 1977 is accessible for $15.99.

“But how magnificent would it not be if there have been just a comparative grammar of the most Romance languages, that might permit me to match at a look a rule within the language with which i'm such a lot acquainted with the corresponding rule within the language i do know least!”
This paintings is a solution to the awake and subconscious wishes of those scholars and instructor of Romance languages. it's a booklet the need of which has lengthy been felt, yet in some way nobody has ever taken the difficulty to provide it.
There is a few inconsistency within the undeniable fact that Departments of Romance Languages are way more universal in our approach of upper schooling than separate Departments of French, Spanish and Italian, but nowhere are the Romance Languages taught as a unit from the comparative attitude that may enable the learner to prevent significant confusions and significant pitfalls. studying 3 comparable languages without delay should still definitely turn out not more tricky than studying them individually.
