A REFERENCE GRAMMAR OF HINDI, A STUDY OF SOME SELECTED TOPICS IN HINDI GRAMMAR.
BAHL, KALI C.
A REFERENCE GRAMMAR WAS COMPILED FOR MODERN STANDARD HINDI GRAMMAR. THIS GRAMMAR IS BASED UPON A VIEW THAT HINDI IS A LITERARY LANGUAGE, AND THAT ITS SYNTAX SHOULD THEREFORE BE STUDIED NOT ONLY AS THE SYNTAX OF A COLLOQUIAL LANGUAGE BUT ALSO AS THE SYNTAX OF A LITERARY LANGUAGE. THE MATERIAL FOR THE STUDY WAS TAKEN FROM LITERARY TEXTS. SOME EXPERIMENTAL APPROACHES WERE USED TO COMBINE A SYNTACTIC DESCRIPTION WITH A SEMANTIC DESCRIPTION AND TO REVEAL, AT THE SAME TIME, THE DEEP STRUCTURE OF THE LANGUAGE. MANY EXAMPLES WERE INCLUDED AS ILLUSTRATIONS. THE FOLLOWING TOPICS WERE OMITTED--(1) A MORPHOLOGICAL DESCRIPTION OF NOUNS, VERBS, AND ADJECTIVES, (2) A CLASSIFICATION OF ADJECTIVES AND ADVERBS, (3) AN INVENTORY OF POST-POSTIONS, AND (4) AN ACCOUNT OF VARIOUS PROCESSES OF WORD FORMATION.
