So, today I was like “I should learn some stuff about Polish grammar. This will help me notice patterns when I’m reading and listening”. I looked up “Polish grammar for beginners” and found “Polish grammar in a nutshell”. Then I started skimming and…jesus…christ…
“Polish has a well developed system of verbal adjectives (participles),verbal adverbs (gerunds), and verbal nouns, in both Perfective and Imperfective aspects.”
This sort of thing happens all the time. I’ll focus on reading/listening anyway (because it works^^) but I still think that learning…well…how to read a textbook…might be useful.
Do you know any ressources that explain grammar terminology without assuming that you already know grammar terminology? Should I just read/listen to grammar lessons and look up unknown words? Any ideas?
PS:I want to learn grammar terminology because I want to be able to read texts that are written in “Grammarnese” and the ressources that you suggest don’t have to be about Polish. They can be about English, German, French, Polish or Japanese and in English, German or French.
