A BRIEF HINDI REFERENCE GRAMMAR. PRELIMINARY VERSION.
GUMPERZ, JOHN J.; MISRA, VIDYA NIWAS
THIS BRIEF OUTLINE OF HINDI PHONOLOGY AND GRAMMAR IS INTENDED FOR FIRST AND SECOND YEAR STUDENTS OF HINDI WHO HAVE SOME PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE OF THE ORAL AND WRITTEN LANGUAGE BUT WHO MAY HAVE HAD NO PREVIOUS TRAINING IN LINGUISTIC TERMINOLOGY. THE AUTHORS HAVE THEREFORE EMPHASIZED SIMPLICITY AND READABILITY RATHER THAN EXHAUSTIVENESS OR ORIGINALITY OF ANALYSIS. ALTHOUGH NOT A LANGUAGE TEXTBOOK, THIS GRAMMAR MAY BE USED TO SUPPLEMENT A CLASSROOM TEXT AS A REFERENCE GUIDE FOR INDIVIDUAL READING OR FOR GRAMMAR REVIEW. THE BRIEF INTRODUCTION TRACES THE HISTORY AND CURRENT USE OF HINDI-URDU IN MODERN INDIA. FOLLOWING CHAPTERS INCLUDE A DESCRIPTION OF THE PHONOLOGY, GENERAL SENTENCE STRUCTURE, PHRASES, FORM CLASSES, AND VERBS AND VERB CONSTRUCTIONS. A ROMAN TRANSLITERATION OF THE DEVANAGARI SCRIPT IS USED THROUGHOUT. (JD)
