A REFERENCE GRAMMAR OF PANJABI.
GILL, HARJEET S.; GLEASON, HENRY A., JR.
A REFERENCE GRAMMAR WAS PREPARED FOR STUDENTS OF PANJABI. THE INTENTION OF THE COMPILERS WAS TO MAKE IT USEFUL TO THOSE PREPARING TEACHING MATERIALS FOR PANJABI, THOSE TEACHING THE LANGUAGE BY MODERN AURAL-LINGUAL METHODS, OR OTHER USERS (NOT NECESSARILY PROFESSIONAL LINGUISTS) WHO WISH A DESCRIPTION BASED EQUALLY ON THE SPOKEN AND THE WRITTEN LANGUAGE. IN FORM OF PRESENTATION IT IS A REFERENCE GRAMMAR RATHER THAN A TECHNICAL STRUCTURAL SKETCH. WHEN A CHOICE HAD TO BE MADE, THE MORE CONVENTIONAL TREATMENT WAS USED. STUDENTS OF PANJABI WHO HAVE KNOWN THE LANGUAGE FROM CHILDHOOD WILL FIND SOME THINGS OF INTEREST IN THIS GRAMMAR. SOME TOPICS ARE TREATED IN GREATER DETAIL THAN IN ANY PREVIOUS PANJABI GRAMMAR. SOME SUBJECTS COVERED IN THIS BOOK HAVE RECEIVED NO ATTENTION AT ALL IN THE TRADITIONAL GRAMMARS. THE TONES, THE RELATION OF WRITING TO SPEECH, AND MANY POINTS OF SYNTAX ARE EXAMPLES. ON THOSE TOPICS WHICH HAVE BEEN WELL COVERED, THE PERSPECTIVE GAINED BY SEEING THEM FROM A NEW VIEWPOINT MAY BE VALUABLE AND SUGGESTIVE OF IMPORTANT INSIGHTS. (TC)
