Product Description
Spoken Written SPANISH A Course for Beginners BY SAMUEL A. WOFSY University of California., Santa Barbara College 1948 THE MACMILLAN COMPANY NEW YORK Preface Spoken and Written Spanish contains a total active vocabulary of 668 words. All but 9 of the first 500 words in the Buchanan list are included 117 words are taken from, the next 400 words in the same list the Kenniston list and common sense justify the inclusion of the remaining 60. The reduction of vocabulary and the essentials of grammar to their proper minimum along with their gradual introduction and frequent repetition should increase the ability of the student to assimi late and then retain what he has learned. The included read ing material contributes essentially to the all-important drill and is especially desirable because of the variety and interest it adds to the exercises it bolsters. The explanations of Spanish usage are brief and, excepting the most indispensable parts of speech, as free from grammatical terminology as possible. Grateful acknowledgment should here be made for the helpful advice and sound criticism of the Macmillan Advisors. Thanks are also due to the following list of friends who read one part or another of the manuscript Professor Robert G. Mood, University of Wichita Professor Gerald E. Wade, Uni versity of Tennessee Professor B. E. Merriam, formerly of Union College Manila, P. I. Sr. Jose Rodriguez, Monterrey, Mexico and my colleagues, Professors Pablo Avila, Eda Ramelli and Andr6s Rodriguez Ramdn, of the Foreign Lan vi Preface guage Faculty of the University of California, Santa Barbara College. To Sr. Ramon, who has been kind enough to read proof of most of my manuscript, I am particularly indebted for many suggestions.
