LEXICOGRAPHICAL PROBLEMS IN PASHTO.
CHAVARRIS-AGUILAR, O.L.; PENZL, HERBERT
PROBLEMS IN DEVELOPING SUITABLE DICTIONARIES OF PASHTO WERE REPORTED. PASHTO WAS DESCRIBED AS A MEMBER OF THE IRANIAN BRANCH OF THE INDO-EUROPEAN LANGUAGES SPOKEN IN EASTERN AND SOUTHERN AFGHANISTAN AND IN NORTHEASTERN PAKISTAN. FIVE TOPICS DEALING WITH THE PASHTO LANGUAGE WERE DISCUSSED--(1) STATISTICS, (2) WRITTEN CORPUS AND LEXICAL STUDIES, (3) DIALECTS, (4) FOREIGN LOAN WORDS, AND (5) SUCH NONLEXICAL PROBLEMS AS TRANSLITERATION, TRANSCRIPTION, AND GRAMMATICAL IDENTIFICATION. THIS REPORT IS ONE OF A SERIES OF 13 PAPERS PRESENTED AT A CONFERENCE ON LEXICOGRAPHY, INDIANA UNIVERSITY, NOVEMBER 11-12, 1960. (GC)
