Advanced Grammar Book?

Posted by waitingroom May 23, 2009 in the Group General Discussion.

For a long time I've been looking for a good grammar reference for more advanced students - all I've been able to find are quite comprehensive grammar books for Cantonese, but not for Mandarin. Perhaps my expectations are too high, but I was hoping to find something akin to "Practical English Usage" (Oxford Press), a reference book that covers most post-intermediate grammar points as well as basic stuff. I already own Intermediate Chinese (Yip/Rimmington) and Modern Mandarin Chinese Grammar (Claudia Ross/Jing-Heng Sheng Ma).

Do you have any recommendations? Doesn't matter if the book is only available in China and/or entirely in Chinese, or if it's a grammar guide for native speakers, as long as the points discussed are accompanied by examples. ;)

Thanks in advance!
