PASHTO BASIC COURSE.
CHAVARRIA-AGUILAR, O.L.
THIS STUDENT TEXT AND THE ACCOMPANYING "INSTRUCTOR'S HANDBOOK" WERE DEVELOPED FOR USE IN A ONE-YEAR, SEMI-INTENSIVE COURSE FOR NATIVE SPEAKERS OF ENGLISH. THESE MATERIALS ARE NOT DESIGNED FOR SELF INSTRUCTION, BUT ARE FOR CLASSROOM USE WITH A NATIVE SPEAKER OF PASHTO AND AN INSTRUCTOR WITH SOME KNOWLEDGE OF LINGUISTICS. THE DIALECT OF PASHTO REPRESENTED HERE IS THAT OF EASTERN AFGHANISTAN. SINCE THIS COURSE IS INTENDED TO PRESENT BASIC CONCEPTS OF PRONUNCIATION AND STRUCTURE, IT PROVIDES INTENSIVE PRACTICE IN RECOGNIZING AND PRODUCING THE PHONEMES OF THE LANGUAGE BEFORE PRESENTING POINTS OF STRUCTURE. THE ARTICULATION OF EACH SOUND IS FIRST DESCRIBED AND THEN THE INSTRUCTOR DRILLS THE STUDENTS IN RECOGNIZING AND REPEATING THE SOUND. THE LESSONS IN STRUCTURE WHICH FOLLOW THE PRONUNCIATION SECTION ARE COMPOSED OF--(1) SENTENCES WHICH PRESENT NEW FORMS, (2) NOTES ON GRAMMAR AND ALTERNATE FORMS (TO BE READ AS HOMEWORK OR COVERED IN CLASS), (3) ORAL DRILLS, AND (4) THE NEW VOCABULARY ITEMS GIVEN IN CONTEXT. ALL THE PASHTO MATERIAL IS WRITTEN IN PHONEMIC TRANSCRIPTION RATHER THAN THE TRADITIONAL ARABIC SCRIPT. APPENDED ARE A "SUMMARY OF VERB TYPES" CHART AND SEVERAL VERY SHORT "MISCELLANEOUS READINGS." INFORMATION ON THIS TEXT MAY BE OBTAINED FROM THE CHAIRMAN, DEPT. OF NEAR EASTERN STUDIES, UNIV. OF MICHIGAN, ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN 48104. (JD)
