SPOKEN MARATHI. BOOK I, FIRST-YEAR INTENSIVE COURSE.
KAVADI, NARESH B.; SOUTHWORTH, FRANKLIN C.
"SPOKEN MARATHI" PRESENTS THE BEGINNING STUDENT WITH THE BASIC PHONOLOGY AND STRUCTURE OF MODERN MARATHI. IT IS ASSUMED THAT THE STUDENT WILL SPEND MOST OF HIS STUDY TIME LISTENING TO AND SPEAKING THE LANGUAGE, EITHER WITH A NATIVE SPEAKER INSTRUCTOR OR WITH RECORDED MATERIALS. THIS TEXT IS DESIGNED TO PROVIDE MATERIAL FOR A ONE-YEAR INTENSIVE COURSE AND INCLUDES--(1) AN INTRODUCTION TO THE METHODS, FORMAT, AND TRANSCRIPTION TO BE USED, (2) 25 GRAMMAR UNITS INTERSPERSED WITH (3) SHORT "CONVERSATIONS" OR DIALOGS TO BE MEMORIZED AND STRESSING HIGH FREQUENCY VOCABULARY AND STRUCTURES, (4) APPENDED GRAMMATICAL SUMMARIES FOR REFERENCE, AND (5) A MARATHI-ENGLISH VOCABULARY AND AN ENGLISH-MARATHI INDEX. ALL MARATHI MATERIAL IS WRITTEN IN PHONETIC TRANSCRIPTION. THE GRAMMAR UNITS PRESENT THE GRAMMAR THROUGH BRIEF EXPLANATIONS AND EXAMPLES FOR EACH POINT. NEW GRAMMATICAL STRUCTURES ARE THEN DRILLED BY ORAL SUBSTITUTION, TRANSFORMATION, AND QUESTION-ANSWER DRILLS. COORDINATED WITH THE "CONVERSATIONS" AND THE QUESTION-ANSWER DRILLS ARE SHORT "CONVERSATIONAL STIMULI" WHICH ENCOURAGE THE STUDENTS TO IMPROVISE AND PRACTICE FAMILIAR STRUCTURES.
